Pathology is a medical specialty dealing with the investigation of the causes, course and manifestation of illnesses and diseases.
Pathologists are doctors studying and working to find the cause and development of disease. Most pathologists choose a specialty such as clinical pathology, genetics or forensic pathology. Clinical pathology supports the diagnosis of disease using laboratory testing of blood and other bodily fluids, tissues, and microscopic evaluation.
Forensic pathology refers to the incorporation of pathological concepts for legal purposes, one of which is deciding the cause of death. Pathologists are required to have received training and knowledge regarding all common diseases afflicting patients.
Conditions and pathological processes studied by pathologists include infections (such as osteomyelitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, influenza) and cancers (such as blood cancers, bone tumors, skin cancers). A pathologist collaborates with physicians and infectious disease specialists to unravel the cause of certain diseases and their course.
Other services provided include diagnostic services (physical tests and examinations, laboratory examinations, imaging services).
