Clinical pathology in oral surgery treatment
Posted on 6/6/2022 by Ankur Johri
|It is a medical specialty that is concerned with the diagnosis of disease based on the laboratory analysis of bodily fluids, such as blood, urine, and tissue homogenates or extracts using the tools of chemistry, microbiology, hematology, and molecular pathology.
Our clinical pathologists look at blood, urine, and other body fluid samples under a microscope, or with other diagnostic tools. They watch the levels of certain chemicals or other substances in the body. A diagnosis or decision to do further study is then made based on the test results. Visit our doctors today.
Types of clinical pathology in oral surgery treatment
Anatomical pathology, this area of pathology involves the examination of surgical specimens removed from the body or sometimes the examination of the whole body (autopsy) to investigate and diagnose disease. Anatomical pathology is further classified into sub-specialties. They include surgical pathology, histopathology, cytopathology, and forensic pathology.
Clinical pathology, this branch of pathology involves the laboratory analysis of body fluids (such as blood, urine, or cerebrospinal fluid) and bodily tissue for the diagnosis of disease. Some of the main subspecialties of clinical pathology include:
Chemical pathology, also called clinical chemistry, involves the assessment of various components in bodily fluids such as the blood or urine, although for the main part it concerns the analysis of blood serum and plasma.
Immunology or immunopathology refers to the study of immune system disorders such as immunodeficiencies, organ-transplant rejection, and allergies. Hematology or hematopathology concerns the investigation and diagnosis of blood diseases.
Molecular pathology is another type. Molecular pathology is a multi-disciplinary field that focuses on disease at the sub-microscopic, molecular level. Aspects studied may include a mixture of anatomical pathology, clinical pathology, genetics, molecular biology, and biochemistry.
