Clinical Pathology

Clinical Pathology

Reem Medical Group offers comprehensive care and non-invasive diagnostic services for our patients with a ‘Human Touch,’ including consultation with one of our general physicians as well as an ongoing evaluation and management of any specific problem. Doctors rely on the accuracy of tests and other investigations to make their diagnosis. At Reem Medical Group, we use state-of-the-art equipment, following a set of stringent procedures, and have the most qualified doctors and technical staff to ensure that every test result and investigation is accurate.

Diagnostic facilities available at the clinic include a State-of-the-Art Laboratory. A large number of laboratory tests are widely available to help doctors confirm their clinical findings and reach a diagnosis. Many tests are specialised for a particular group of diseases, and a deviation from normal indicates that the organ is diseased. Reem Medical Diagnostics Centre has a well-equipped laboratory that offers a broad spectrum of clinical testing designed to provide the specialists and the patients with the most accurate, precise and diagnostically indicative lab results.  We use the most advanced technologies with the most sophisticated and high precision equipment.

At Reem Medical & Diagnostic Centre, State-of-the-Art Laboratory is equipped to handle investigations in the below-mentioned areas:

Haematology:

Haematology is the study of blood and blood-forming tissues. The techniques of haematology are concerned with the cellular formed elements of blood, their number or concentration, the relative distribution of various types of cells and the structure or biochemical abnormalities that promote diseases such as anaemia, haematological malignancy, and coagulation abnormalities.

Various tests in haematology are:

  • Complete Blood Count including TLC, DLC, etc.
  • ESR

Biochemistry:

It is the study of the chemical constituents of the human body in health and disease.  Most tests are carried out in blood or urine, but other body fluids, cells, and tissues may also be analysed.  The Clinical Chemistry Laboratory performs a wide range of tests in order to determine the diagnosis of various conditions.

Some of the common tests in biochemistry are:

  • Blood Sugar
  • Liver Function Test
  • Lipid Profile
  • Kidney Function Test

Microbiology:

Laboratories are primarily concerned with providing a service to clinicians to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of microbial diseases such as meningitis, respiratory tract and disease of the digestive system and wound infections.  Specimens commonly examined are blood, urine, faeces, and sputum.

Serology:

Serology blood test is performed to detect and measure the levels of antibodies as a result of exposure to a particular bacteria or virus.  When people are exposed to bacteria or viruses (antigens), their body’s immune system produces specific antibodies against the organism.  Antibody levels (antibody titer) help physicians determine whether an infection occurred recently or years ago.

Histopathology:

Histopathology is the microscopic examination of biological tissues to observe the appearance of diseased cells and tissues in fine detail.

The word “histopathology” is derived from a combination of three Greek words:

  • histos meaning tissue
  • pathos meaning disease or suffering
  • logos meaning the study

Hence, histopathology is the study of microscopic changes or abnormalities in tissues that are caused as a result of diseases.

Histopathology services include:

  1. Routine biopsy (H & E)
  2. Histochemical stains for PAS, GMS, Wade-Fite, EVG, Reticulin, Masson-Fontana, Giemsa, AFB, Congo red, and Perl’s Prussian blue.
  3. Polarising microscopy
  4. Immunohistochemistry offering a wide range of markers for typing of cancer
  5. Immunofluorescence for skin and renal biopsies
  6. Frozen section for rapid perioperative diagnosis
  7. Microphotography

 Cytology:

Cytology refers to a branch of pathology, the medical speciality that deals with making diagnoses of diseases and conditions through the examination of tissue samples from the body. Cytologic examinations may be performed on body fluids (examples are blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid) or on material that is aspirated (drawn out via suction into a syringe) of the body. Cytology also can involve examinations of preparations that are scraped or washed (irrigated with a sterile solution) from specific areas of the body. For example, a common example of diagnostic cytology is the evaluation of cervical smears (referred to as the Papanicolaou test or Pap smear).

Cytology services include:

  • FNAC procedures
  • Routine PAP staining
  • Cell blocks
  • Immunohistochemistry on cell blocks
