The Histology Lab prepares surgical/autopsy tissues for microscopic diagnosis using routine, special and immunoperoxidase stains. The Anatomic Pathology Service employs surgical pathologists who are always on call for intraoperative consultation regarding specimen diagnosis. Routine diagnosis of biopsy and surgical specimens is performed on a 5-day-a-week basis, but special arrangements can be made by contacting the surgical pathologist on call. Autopsy pathologists are on call on a constant basis, but usually perform autopsies on a 7-day-a-week basis between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Special arrangements can be made if necessary by contacting the pathologist on call who is always available for consultation or questions regarding autopsy performance.
Days: Monday through Friday (weekends on-call)
