The Division of Neuropathology has five full-time clinical neuropathologists on staff who are available for consultation on biopsies and autopsies as well as a neurologist with specialty training in muscle and nerve biopsy diagnosis. We are also able to offer real time neuropathological expertise over Telepathology.
The Neuropathology Consultation Service offers comprehensive consultations on brain tumors, muscle and nerve diseases, dementias and neurodegenerative diseases, pediatric neuropathology and ophthalmic pathology. Our laboratories are state-of-the-art facilities inspected by the College of American Pathologists and licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. All maintain rigorous quality assurance programs.
