Pathology is the medical specialty concerned with the study of the nature and causes of diseases. It underpins every aspect of medicine, from diagnostic testing and monitoring of chronic diseases to cutting-edge genetic research and blood transfusion technologies. Pathology is integral to the diagnosis of every cancer.
Pathology plays a vital role across all facets of medicine throughout our lives, from pre-conception to post mortem. In fact it has been said that "Medicine IS Pathology".
Currently pathology has nine major areas of activity. These relate to either the methods used or the types of disease which they investigate
- Anatomical Pathology
- Chemical Pathology
- Clinical Pathology
- Forensic Pathology
- General Pathology
- Genetic Pathology
Pathology has become a highly developed science and we are now aware of many minute tissue changes that occur in diseases. This knowledge can be utilized and integrated into Homoeopathy as far as possible to explain and illustrate our principles and approach.
