Services and symptoms treated
Anatomical pathology services are available at this Advocate Medical Group location from Monday through Friday. This includes surgical pathology and cytology services. Currently there is no histology Laboratory at this location.
The biopsies obtained are accessioned into LIS and given a unique accession number. A pathologist performs the gross examination and all wet tissue blocks are sent to ACL Laboratory for processing. Any special or immunohistochemical stains are also performed at ACL Laboratory. These are then interpreted by AMG Pathologists. A list of Anatomical Pathology services is as follows:
- Gross and microscopic examination of surgical pathology specimens
- Interpretation of special stains and immunohistochemistry
- Intraoperative evaluations and frozen sections services
- Interpretation of bone marrow biopsies
- Evaluation of abnormal peripheral blood smears by the pathologist
- Interpretation of abnormal pap smears
