histology

The study of the microscopic structure of the body. All healthy tissues are identifiable microscopically and a knowledge of normal histology is an essential basis for the recognition of the specific microscopic changes occurring in disease. The microscopic study of diseased tissue and the identification of diseases by this means is called histopathology.
