Anatomic Pathology & Forensic Pathology

Anatomical pathology is a study which is concerned with the diagnosis on the analysis of the biochemical, immunologic and Molecular examination.

The term anatomical pathology is derived by an Italian scientist Giovan Battista Morgagni,  Forlì.

Anatomical pathology is one of two branches of pathology & clinical pathology where the diagnosis of disease is carried out through the laboratory analysis of Body fluids and Tissues.

Anatomic pathology relates to the examination, processing, and diagnosis of specimens obtained from the diagnosis.

Forensic pathology is a branch of pathology that determines the cause of death by examination of a corpse where a post-mortem is performed usually during the investigation of criminal cases and civil law cases. Similarly, Coroners and medical examiners are asked to confirm the identity of a corpse.

A Forensic pathologist is a person who performs the autopsy or Postmortem examinations for determining the cause of death

Forensic pathology examines the documents related to wounds and injuries along with both autopsy and clinical setting.

These pathologists collect data and examine tissue specimens under the microscope for the presence or absence of disease and other findings such as Asbestos bodies, gunpowder particles around a gunshot wound.

Sometimes Forensic physicians are referred to as "Forensic medical examiners" or "police surgeons" and are also medical doctors who got trained in the examination and provision of medical treatment for living victims including Sexual assault & individuals who are in police custody.
