Histopathology describes the processes and practices that are central to the role of the histopathology biomedical scientist, from pre-sampling to diagnosis to laboratory management.
An understanding of the physiology of cells and tissue is vital to the successful identification of clinical conditions and, as such, this book begins by laying out the key features of both and their significance for diagnosis. But histopathology relies heavily on optical technology, and microscopy is covered in detail from fixation, through staining to light and electron imaging methods.
A complete course on the concepts and skills needed for a biomedical scientist to work within a functioning histopathology laboratory.
