Pathology in Gurgaon

Pathology studies diagnose and identify diseases, as well as investigate their Aetiology (cause), Pathogenesis (development), and Epidemiology (spread). Pathology is a subspecialty of medical science that deals with the causes and mechanisms of disease. Pathologists examine body tissues, such as those obtained through surgical or biopsy procedures or post-mortem examinations, to find signs of disease. Pathology aims to aid doctors in diagnosing ailments, determining the severity of an illness, and planning treatment. Pathologists also identify infectious agents, such as bacteria and viruses, determine their toxicity, and help pin down their hosts (the types of cells they inhabit) and how they spread from host to host. Manipal Hospitals is the most efficient Pathology hospital in Gurgaon and has an expert team of Pathologists to determine the cause of diseases for effective treatment.

Pathology Services

  • Bacteriology

Bacteriology studies bacteria, their life cycle and the conditions that affect them.

Bacteria are single-celled microorganisms found everywhere in the environment and the body, including the mouth, throat, skin and gut.

A Bacteriology test can help identify whether the patient has a bacterial infection by detecting the presence of bacteria in the body. Some tests look for specific types of bacteria, while others look for an inflammatory response to bacteria. 

  • Virology

Virology studies Viruses, tiny particles that can infect living cells, replicate themselves and cause diseases in humans and animals. The most common types of viruses are DNA and RNA viruses.

The main types of tests used to diagnose viral infections include:

  • Serological tests identify antibodies against a particular virus in the blood sample as the immune system produces an antibody after being exposed to a virus. It helps the body fight off future infections by this same virus.

  • Antigen Detection Test: This test detects whether or not Antigens (substances that cause an immune response) are present in the body fluids such as Urine or Saliva.

  • Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR): This technique makes many copies of DNA from small amounts of starting material so that it can be detected more quickly than other methods.

  • Parasitology

Parasitology studies Parasites, organisms living in or on another organism called their host. They are found almost anywhere in the world and are often responsible for causing disease in humans and other animals.

The tests used to diagnose conditions caused by parasites include blood tests, stool samples, urine samples, and skin biopsies. 

Conditions that need diagnosis due to parasitic infection include Amoebiasis, Giardiasis, Schistosomiasis, Trichinosis, and Toxoplasmosis.

  • Infectious Diseases Serology

Serology is the study of blood to diagnose infectious diseases, including HIV, syphilis, and Lyme disease.

The common types of Serological tests are:

  • Screening test - Tests for the presence of antibodies in the blood.

  • Confirmation test - Tests for a specific antibody that indicates the presence of a disease.

  • Monitoring test - Tests for changes in antibody levels over time or when given a stimulus such as an infection or vaccination.

  • Mycology

Mycology studies Fungi, eukaryotic organisms that are heterotrophic and lack chlorophyll. It focuses on the identification, classification, and study of Fungi.

Fungal diseases affect humans, animals, plants, and even insects. They can cause infections or irritation in humans and other organisms. The fungi can also cause plant infections, leading to stunted growth and poor yield.

The most common tests done by Mycologists are Culture, Microscopy, and molecular methods, such as PCR testing for DNA sequences specific to certain species or groups of species.

Diagnosis Facilities

  • Liver Function Tests (LFT)

Liver Function Tests (LFT) are blood tests that evaluate the liver's health. LFTs can identify conditions such as Hepatitis, Cirrhosis, and Liver Cancer.

Doctors recommend LFT when a doctor suspects a liver problem or to see if one of the medications is causing damage to the liver.

The most common procedure for taking an LFT is drawing blood from a vein in the arm with a needle and syringe.

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC)

The Complete Blood Count (CBC) test helps measure the blood cells. It can help find out if a patient has too many or too few white blood cells, red blood cells, or platelets.

A CBC helps identify specific conditions, such as Anaemia and Leukaemia.

The test consists of a quick procedure: A blood sample taken from the arm with a needle and syringe goes to a lab for analysis.

  • Iron Studies

Iron Studies determine the levels of iron in the blood. Iron is a mineral that helps make red blood cells and haemoglobin, an essential part of red blood cells. Haemoglobin takes oxygen from the lungs to all body parts. Iron studies include:

  • Ferritin, which is a protein that stores iron in the body

  • Serum iron, which is the amount of iron in the blood

  • Total Iron-Binding Capacity measures how much iron the body's binding proteins can store.

  • TSH Quantification

TSH Quantification is a process to measure the Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) level. The thyroid gland produces TSH, which regulates the body's metabolism, growth, and other essential functions. The blood test for TSH quantification measures how much TSH is in the blood and how sensitive the thyroid gland is to the hormone.

TSH quantification can identify several conditions that may cause changes in the body's metabolism and growth, including Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism. It can also monitor treatment for these conditions.

Pathologists in Gurgaon draw blood from an arm or hand vein for lab analysis.

  • Urinalysis

Urinalysis examines urine to determine specific conditions. It can detect Infections, Kidney Diseases, Diabetes, and other conditions using specific markers that indicate certain conditions.

Some essential identifications include:

  • pH Level 

  • Colour/ Appearance

  • Odour

  • Lipid Profile

A Lipid Profile Test measures Cholesterol and Triglycerides in the blood. The test includes five different types of lipids: 

  • Total cholesterol

  • Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) Cholesterol

  • High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) Cholesterol

  • Very Low-Density Lipoprotein (VLDL) Cholesterol

  • Triglycerides.

The total cholesterol measurement identifies how much cholesterol the body needs to function correctly. 

  • A low total cholesterol level may indicate an underactive thyroid gland or other metabolic problems. A high level may indicate Diabetes or other diseases that affect metabolism.

  • The LDL measurement identifies the amount of so-called "bad" cholesterol in your body. 

  • High LDL levels signal Cardiovascular Disease as they accrue in arteries and harden and narrow them over time.

  • HDL measurements identify the amount of so-called "good" cholesterol in the body. High HDL levels are associated with a lower risk for heart disease because they help remove excess LDL from circulation.

  • VLDL measurements identify the number of Triglycerides—another form of fat—in the bloodstream. High levels can lead to obesity, increasing heart disease or stroke risk.

  • Biopsy

A Biopsy removes a small piece of tissue from an organ or body part to analyse under a microscope. This procedure diagnoses diseases or conditions such as Cancer and Diabetes.

The biopsy involves an incision in the skin and removing the desired tissue. Sometimes, a needle may be inserted through the skin to remove small pieces of tissue. A Pathologist will then examine the sample under a microscope to identify signs of disease.

A Biopsy may happen on any organ or body part, including:

  • Skin (including Moles)

  • Breast tissue

  • Lungs (Bronchoscopy)

  • Liver (Hepatoscopy)

Fasting should not exceed 12 hours. For these tests, it is recommended that you fast overnight. Visit our best pathology services hospital in Gurugram to know more.

Immunopathology studies the immune system's response to disease and infection. It focuses on how the body's immune system responds to disease or infection, its function in fighting off infections, and how it can cause damage to other parts of the body. This damage can come from an overactive immune response, causing inflammation or tissue damage, or an underactive response, which leaves a person susceptible to infection.

At Manipal Hospitals, we have state-of-the-art technology for the best Pathology in Gurgaon.

Pulmonary Pathology studies the lungs. It involves diagnosing, treating and managing diseases affecting the lungs, including Lung Cancer and Emphysema.

Pulmonary Pathologists provide diagnostic services, including establishing the cause of death complications related to lung function. 

Pulmonary pathologists also provide clinical care, which includes ordering and interpreting medical tests such as X-Rays or CT Scans.

Parasites are living organisms that attach themselves to other organisms, such as humans or plants. These organisms use the host for food, water and shelter. Viruses are pieces of DNA or RNA that can replicate only within a cell. A virus entering a host cell uses the host's machinery to make copies of itself.

Cytopathology is an examination of cells to diagnose a disease. The cell sample can come from a patient's body, tissues, and fluids from patients who have already died. A Cytopathologist specialises in cell examination.

Cytopathology diagnoses Cancer, Leukaemia, and other diseases that affect the blood and bone marrow. It can also identify infections and other conditions that involve the reproductive system or digestive tract.

Doctors recommend patients undergo Cytopathology when they have unexplained symptoms, including fever, fatigue and weakness, or experience unexplained bleeding or bruising that lasts longer than two weeks without treatment.
