What is pathology?

pathologyPathology is a term used to describe a wide variety of diagnostic disciplines, which together can help to build a picture of a patient’s bodily functions and the structure and behaviour of the body’s cells, tissue and bodily fluids from samples taken. Every time you give a sample of blood, stool, urine or tissue it is examined by a pathologist or pathology scientist.

Pathologists look for any abnormalities within samples and through preventative screenings, these tests can help with detecting fatal conditions or diseases early. Pathology also plays a key role in research, such as discovering treatments for cancer and inherited conditions and developing vaccines against infectious diseases.
