Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology

The Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology Unit of the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology deals with neoplasms and other pathological conditions that affect the skeletal system and many non-epithelial extraskeletal tissues, such as fibrous and adipose tissue, skeletal muscle, vessels, and peripheral nerves.

The diagnostic process includes but is not limited to the study of the macroscopic and microscopic features of a specimen; in select cases, the diagnosis is validated by special techniques such as immunohistochemistry, cytogenetics, and molecular pathology. Additionally, surgeons, oncologists, and radiologists may provide added information and expertise.

Because of the relative rarity of pathological and neoplastic conditions of the bone and soft tissue, it is important that a specialist who is familiar with their features and biological potential diagnose them.
