WISEGeek definition of Pathology: in essence, the study of blood, fluid, and tissue samples, which allow doctors to make diagnoses of various illnesses, by looking for specific factors lacking or present in these samples. In medical care, the pathologist is a very valuable part of the medical team, since many diseases are diagnosed or ruled out by microscopic and lab analysis of fluid, blood, or tissue samples.
