Patients and doctors in Illinois can get diagnostic services from Surgical Pathology. Both general tissue diagnostics and specialised testing for malignancy and prognostic indicators are offered by our academics and staff. In order to provide our services, we work closely with numerous different departmental groups.
Surgery pathology evaluates tissue to get a diagnosis. A special identification number is given to each tissue specimen when it is accessed. Examining tissue, including sophisticated specimen dissection, faculty, pathology residents, and pathologists’ assistants choose which sections to send for microscopic analysis. At this point, tissue is also chosen for banking and specialised research. Biopsies are given priority and accelerated processing when obtaining small specimens for diagnosis. The stabilisation of tissue for subsequent dissection and the collection of tissue for microscopic sections may require overnight fixing for complex cases. Decalcification-needed specimens could need more time. Digital photography is used to record complex specimen discoveries.
Surgical pathologists, fellows, and pathology residents examine the microscopic slides after they have been processed to build diagnostic reports. This slide review through publication of a final diagnosis in the UI Hospital HIS may take a further 24 hours, and completion of reports for complicated specimens requiring specialised research usually requires more time, with the majority of complicated cases reported within five working days. Faculty in surgical pathology examine each case before signing it off. There are no preliminary diagnoses published in Surgical Pathology. If a case has sudden or urgent clinical needs for which a final report cannot be presented in a timely manner, urgent reports are posted in HIS.
The final authority on tumour diagnosis is with surgical pathologists. In the absence of a tissue diagnosis, the diagnosis of cancer cannot be reliably inferred, regardless of how high the index of clinical suspicion may be. With very few circumstances, definite cancer treatment shouldn’t begin before a tissue diagnosis has been made. Most hospitals have policies supporting this procedure spelled out in their bylaws, and hospital tissue committees and accrediting organisations keep a close eye on them.
The focus of surgical pathologists is structure. A thorough gross inspection of the removed tissue is done initially with the unaided eye, and then a more in-depth look is given to tissue sections under a compound light microscope. Frozen tissue sections may be used for intraoperative inspection, although pathologists typically rely on the better structural preservation provided by permanent tissue sections stained with hematoxylin and eosin.
Surgical pathology specimens
Surgical pathology analysis is the main purpose of a biopsy, which is a small sample of tissue that is typically taken to make a definitive diagnosis. Core biopsies are taken using large-bore needles and, on occasion, radiological techniques like ultrasound, CT scans, or MRI, for that matter. Core biopsies preserve tissue architecture in contrast to fine-needle aspiration specimens, which are analysed using cytopathology techniques. Excisional biopsies are collected through diagnostic surgical procedures that remove a portion of a concerning lesion, whereas incisional biopsies are obtained through therapeutic surgical resections that remove the entire lesion. Excisional biopsies are routinely performed on gastrointestinal polyps and skin lesions.
