The Cytopathology laboratory provides clinical testing, diagnostic evaluations and consultative services for cytologic specimens including both gynecologic and non-gynecologic samples. These include evaluations of Pap tests, body fluid analyses and diagnostic interpretation of fine needle aspiration specimens and brush biopsies from various body sites.
Experienced laboratory pathologists also provide a fine needle biopsy service, performing these biopsies on referral for patients with palpable superficial lesions. These biopsies can be scheduled by appointment and are performed either in the cytopathology laboratory clinic, at the bedside on patient floors or in outpatient clinics.
