Pulmonary Pathology

  • NextGenPath Diagnostics handles a wide range of lung biopsies (including CryoTBLB) and surgical resection specimens.
  • Pulmonary pathology is a sub-speciality of Histopathology that deals with diseases of lung and pleura.
  • Lung biopsy interpretation requires an expert pulmonary pathologist and a panel of special stains with or without immunohistochemistry, ultrastructural and molecular studies.
  • Method of sending the biopsy to our lab: Lung biopsy and resection specimens need to be sent in 10% neutral buffered formalin and CT/Bronchoscopy/Thoracoscopy reports/images wherever feasible.
  • Samples are received 24x7 on all days.
  • Request form for lung-pleura biopsy/resection – Click HERE to download.
  • Learning is a continuous process and we believe that teaching and publishing relevant research are the greatest contributions to the society apart from our patient care services.
  • NextGenPath Archives serves as an excellent freely available online resource for case-based learning of pulmonary pathology.
