The basic principle of the Department of Medical Pathology is "fast and accurate reporting". The Department of Pathology, which is equipped with modern medical technologies, continues the following applications with its up-to-date technological equipment and academic staff.
- All kinds of intraoperative consultation services can be given ‘frozen‘ at any time of the day; that is, tissues that are considered suspicious by the surgeon during surgery can be evaluated by pathologists with a special technique within 10 minutes.
- Biopsy samples are finalized within 1-4 business days depending on their nature.
- Histochemical staining methods and immunohistochemical methods required for diagnosis and treatment can be applied with standardized manual methods or automatically in emergencies in panels with up to 160 antibodies. The primary focus of the tumor, tumor classification, proliferation index, and prognosis determinants can be determined with zero accuracies.
- Especially in cases with suspected cancer or requiring urgent treatment, routine histopathological follow-up can be made within 4-6 hours thanks to microwave tracking devices, and a definitive preliminary diagnosis can be made so that our patient does not lose time when urgent treatment is required.
In the Immunohistochemistry Laboratory, while immunofluorescence studies are carried out as well as histochemical and immunohistochemical dye techniques for diagnostic purposes, requests can be studied daily with full automation. In addition, advanced methods such as "polymerase chain reaction" (PCR), "flow cytometry" and "in situ hybridization" can also be applied in partnership with our Hospital's Microbiology and Genetics Laboratories.
In the Cytopathology Laboratory, samples can be evaluated using both "liquid-based" and "conventional" cytology methods, and immunocytochemical studies can be performed when necessary. At the time of taking samples from our patients for diagnostic purposes by the interventional departments of our hospital, when the need is specified, the per-patient sample adequacy evaluation is carried out by specialist pathologists.
