Pathology is the branch of medicine involved in understanding causes and processes of disease. Pathology encompasses the following disciplines; anatomical pathology, chemical pathology, haematology, immunology, laboratory genetics, and microbiology/ virology. Investigations are made by performing tests on various tissues including blood and other body fluids, and samples taken during surgery or as part of a medical examination. Pathologists interpret the results of these tests, which may show the cause or severity of illness or may be used to monitor treatment once diagnosis has been made.
