What is Pathology?

Pathology is the branch of medicine that studies the nature and causes of diseases. This is done by examining changes in the body tissue or other types of body fluids in the samples provided by patients or doctors. Such changes can confirm causes of disease or indicate the severity of a condition. This process can also be followed to monitor the progress of treatments.

What Does a Pathologist Do?

A pathologist is a specialist medical practitioner that works in the field of pathology. Some pathologists are directly involved in providing patients with the medical care they need, while other pathologists work with other GPs, medical specialists and health care providers.

A pathologist is available to conduct breath, glucose, urine and stool pathology tests, as well as other types of tests on blood, body fluid or tissue samples acquired during a surgical procedure or from pathology collection centres at a doctor’s request. A pathologist will examine such samples to determine the cause of an illness or to monitor how the treatment for the illness is progressing.

It is very common for a pathologist to communicate only with the medical practitioner or specialist who referred their patient to the pathologist, and therefore the pathologist will not likely have any communication with the patient. The pathologist will send the results of the tests conducted and their interpretations to the patient’s GP.
