The main role of the department of pathological anatomy is in the diagnostic field, especially in the oncological field, where in addition to identifying the tumor histological type, we identify subtypes, variants, phenotype, tumor markers and other requirements that modern treatment protocols require. Here we study cells and tissue by visualizing them with the microscope in order to detect and pinpoint the nature of diseases. In this way, a diagnosis can be established that allows for adequate therapeutic management.
The efforts of the department are oriented to deliver an optimum quality in the examinations that it carries out, in an efficient and cost-effective way. In addition, its specialists participate in academic activities that allow you to expand your experience and disseminate the knowledge of this area of medicine.
In addition, we help in the diagnosis and prevention of uterine cervical cancer, through the interpretation of cervicovaginal cytologies (Papanicolaus). And in the same way to early detection, together with the department of radiology and general surgery with fine-needle punctures sound-directed breast tumors, thyroid, lymph nodes, soft tissues, among others.
We can determine by immunohistochemical markers the histogenesis of most malignant tumors, so that the patient can obtain an appropriate and specific treatment. On the other hand, we perform clinical autopsies to determine the cause of death in patients who die without an established diagnosis.
