At Oral Pathology Diagnostic Services we perform diagnostic consultation on routine hematoxylin and eosin stained slides, assess surgical margins for dysplastic and neoplastic lesions, undertake decalcification protocols for osseous and odontogenic lesions, assess immunopathologic profiles for bullous diseases, utilize special stains for microbial disease diagnosis, and apply immunohistochemical markers for tumor diagnosis as well as for HPV detection. We do not process brush biopsy or cytologic smears since sampling errors, false positive and false negative findings are problematical. Furthermore, only punch or scalpel biopsies provide for an accurate diagnosis.
Email your radiographs & clinical images to email@example.com. We can help you plan the biopsy to reduce sampling error or avoid unnecessary biopsies thereby reducing patient costs.
