surgical pathology

the study of disease by the analysis of tissue specimens obtained during surgery. The surgical pathologist often examines specimens during surgery to determine how the operation should be modified or completed. The appearance of the specimen is noted. Then, slices of the tissue are prepared by the paraffin or frozen section method and microscopically examined by a physician trained in pathology.

histopathology

British histopathologists have trained for over five years as specialist registrars, are on the GMC’s specialist register and are fellows of the Royal College of Pathologists.
