Pathologists are doctors who are specialized in identifying diseases (diagnosis) by studying abnormal cells of human tissue samples (biopsy), biological fluids (blood, saliva, lymph). They are experts who play a key role in identifying or verifying a diagnosis based on tissue analysis.
We collaborate with highly qualified pathologists, narrowly specialized doctors, heads of pathology institutes of the largest hospitals in Israel.
Pathologist examines the tissue sample to determine if it is benign or malignant, and provides this information to the attending doctor. Some pathologists specialize in molecular genetic testing, which helps determine the most appropriate treatment for certain types of cancer.
Their expertise includes identification of such diseases as:
♦ infectious diseases;
♦ genetic disorders (molecular biology and genetics);
♦ diseases of embryos, infants and children’s diseases.
To verify a diagnosis in Israel, please bring or send to Israel blocks and slides of tissue sample for cytological and histopathological analysis by our specialists. We will recommend you specialist for your specific disease.
