Anatomical Pathology

Anatomical pathology, the branch of pathology is the diagnosis of disease through the laboratory analysis of bodily fluids and/or tissues. Anatomic pathology is related to the examination, processing, and diagnosis of surgical specimens by a pathological diagnosis trained physician. The technologies and skills traditionally associated with clinical pathology such as molecular diagnostics are required increasingly for anatomical pathology. The cell morphology and staining characteristics is being analysed for the diagnosis. Electron microscopy gives a greater level of resolution. Immunophenotyping is another development, which identifies the specific antigens by staining with monoclonal or polyclonal antibodies. It is one of the two primary certifications offered by the American Board of Pathology (the other is Clinical Pathology (CP)) and one of three primary certifications offered by the American Osteopathic Board of Pathology.
