General pathology is a broad and complex scientific field seeking to understand the mechanisms of injury to cells and tissues. The department is a medical specialty which is concerned with the diagnosis of diseases based on the analysis of bodily fluids such as blood and urine, and tissues using the tools of chemistry, microbiology, hematology and molecular pathology. They work closely with medical technologists to check with the accuracy and utilization of laboratory testing.
Pathologists examine biopsies or body fluid to diagnose the character of disease. They typically do not see patients directly but rather consult the physicians. Ratan Hospital for Women and Children has the best pathology lab in Patna, offering quality and trustworthy service.
