Pathology News and Research RSS Feed - Pathology News and Research

Pathology is the study and diagnosis of disease through examination of organs, tissues, bodily fluids, and whole bodies (autopsies). The term also encompasses the related scientific study of disease processes, called General pathology.

Medical pathology is divided in two main branches, Anatomical pathology and Clinical pathology. Veterinary pathology is concerned with animal disease whereas Phytopathology is the study of plant diseases.
Experts develop new method to quantify syncytial knots in placenta

Experts develop new method to quantify syncytial knots in placenta

Identifying potential risk factors that may harm placental development is a primary objective of pregnancy screenings. To help ensure healthy pregnancies and, in turn, healthy newborns, researchers and clinicians continue to develop new and innovative testing methods to monitor fetal development. [More]
