The Pathology Department at Brightstar hospital is equipped with the latest fully automatic Biochemistry Analyzer to test the various specimens like Blood, Urine, Stool, Sputum etc. The shape, size and echotecture of the organs in the human body is tested through imaging modalities like Ultrasound, CT Scan, MRI etc. However the functioning of the organs is tested through the values of different chemicals present in blood or urine. Tests like Kidney Function, Liver Function, Thyroid Function, Lipid Profile, Hormones, Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Vitamins, Minerals etc are all measured on a Bio Chemistry Analyzer.
The blood carries nutrition and oxygen to all cells of the body through the circulatory system. It also brings the waste material from the cells for extretion. The blood itself is made of components like Haemoglobin, RBC, WBC, Platelets, Haematocrit etc. The study of these components in the blood is called Haematology and the tests are done on a machine called Haemoanalyzer. Brightstar Hospitals has one of the most advanced Haemoanalyzer to carry out these tests. CBC is the most common blood test which is carried out on virtually every patient and gives a very good idea about the kind of disease that the patient is suffering from.
Histopathology is the branch of pathology that deals with the study of tissues for diseases. The biopsy specimen on which the diagnosis is made is taken from a patient to detect and diagnose disease and also examine disease progression. It is also used to establish the cause in cases of sudden or unexpected death. A large part of this is the detection and diagnosis of cancer. A tissue diagnosis is essential before commencing treatment involving major surgery, radiation or drugs, treatments which may have major side-effects. In histopathology, slides are made from the tissue which is received and then these slides are evaluated under microscope to see the nature of the cells present.
