Chughtai Lab has a long history of excellence in Histopathology. The department of Histopathology is staffed by 12 consultant pathologists, 5 fellow histopathologists, and 8 resident pathologists.
Excellence in Histopathology
Chughtai Lab receives biopsy specimens from all over Pakistan. Specimens are transported to Lahore in sealed containers with 10% buffered formalin. The specimens are grossed by resident pathologists under consultant supervision. Most biopsies are reported within 3 days. Unusual and challenging cases are signed out after discussion on multi-head microscope. Unexpected or urgent reports are communicated to the referring physician directly by the pathologists. The department signs out more than 24,000 biopsies every year.
