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