Histopathology and cytopathology are two branches of pathology that involve the examination of tissue and cells under a microscope in order to diagnose diseases.
Histopathology is the study of tissue changes that occur in diseases and involves the examination of tissue samples taken from biopsies or surgeries. This can include looking at changes in the structure and function of cells, as well as the presence of inflammatory cells, infectious agents, or other abnormal cells.
Cytopathology is the study of cells and involves the examination of cells that have been collected from various sources, such as fine needle aspirations, sputum, or cervical smears. This can include looking at changes in the size, shape, and appearance of cells, as well as the presence of abnormal cells or other markers of disease.
Both histopathology and cytopathology play important roles in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, and are essential tools for modern diagnostic centers. They can help to identify the presence and stage of cancer, as well as help to differentiate between benign and malignant tumors. They can also help to diagnose infections, autoimmune diseases, and other conditions that affect the tissue and cells of the body.
In a modern diagnostic center, histopathology and cytopathology services may be provided by pathologists, who are medical doctors trained in the interpretation of tissue and cell samples. These specialists work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as surgeons, oncologists, and primary care physicians, to provide accurate diagnoses and guide treatment decisions.
