Labcorp pathology’s comprehensive test menu includes gross and histological evaluation of GI and liver biopsy tissue, histochemical and immunohistochemical stains, and molecular and genetic methodologies. Combining our scientific experience with innovative laboratory technologies allows Labcorp pathology to provide comprehensive, rapid-response diagnostic testing to support optimal patient care.
Specimens are reviewed by board-certified pathologists, most of whom are fellowship trained in GI pathology. Cytology specimens, such as brushings and fine-needle aspirations, are evaluated by board-certified and/or experienced cytopathologists with results correlated to histology for maximum accuracy.
The GI pathology department conducts a daily review of malignant and challenging cases, providing a built-in second opinion. This helps ensure diagnostic accuracy and maintains a consistent level of quality.
Cases that require the expertise of multiple subspecialties, such as hematopathology or dermatopathology, are shared with other Labcorp expert pathologists for their review, providing seamless integration across disciplines.
Any cases that remain in question after internal review are referred to an academic-based, nationally recognized expert in GI pathology for diagnostic confirmation and/or further.
Labcorp pathology’s GI pathology callback program notifies physicians about urgent findings such as malignancy or Barrett esophagus.
Ordering physicians may request that a particular pathologist read his or her cases, allowing providers to build rapport and continuity with specific Labcorp pathology pathologists.
