The department has state of the art equipment together with experienced staff to support the clinicians to achieve the above goal.

The laboratory has facilities for all hematological, biochemical and microbiological studies, with state of the art equipment. The department has a full fledged histopathology and cytopathology sections, which are essential for good quality cancer care today.

a) Exfoliative cytopathology - which encompasses Pap Smear study, fluid and sputum cytology. Cell Blocks are prepared where required.
b) FNAC Smears - superficial aspirations are done by the clinicians in the OPD, and deep aspirations are done under guidance of imaging techniques (flouroscopy, CT & USG).

Histopathology services include comprehensive diagnostic coverage in house biopsy processing in an automated tissue processor to surgical biopsy specimens from other centres are also processed. Outside slide consultations are undertaken apart from those enumerated, immuno-histochemistry and tumor marker studies are done, whenever required for a good clinical correlation.
