Urology Histopathology

SR. NO TEST TEST COMPONENTS Method Specimen/Transport TAT Clinical Applications
1 Frozen section - On Cryostate Prior notification of frozen section required for 1) Time of frozen section 2) Type of specimen will be sent to us for frozen 3) What surgeon wants from frozen section 4) Relevant clinical details 5) Contact no of surgeon for communication during and after frozen Fresh specimen in a container without formalin 35 mins after it reaches our laboratory Diagnosis and decision making for additional surgery requirement
2 Liquid based cytology (urine) - By special technique background material is reduced and hence individual cells can be seen clearly to detect early cancer Specimen to be collected in plain tube and transported as early as possible. In case of delay keep and refrigerator and transport with coolent. 24 Hrs Helps early detection of cancer by better visualization of individual cells
