Liver Pathology & Gastrointestinal Pathology

Liver pathology deals with the study of hepatic diseases which includes hepatitis virus, cirrhosis, etc. Hepatic pathologists, radiologists are quite good and sort out many types of Hepatic Lesions. Liver occupies the main functioning in filtering the blood from the digestive system passing throughout the body parts. Some of the viruses can be transmitted during birth and also through contact with infected blood such as Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.

Liver cirrhosis is one of the pathological results of chronic diseases whereas fibrosis is the main precursor of cirrhosis. Some types of cells like Cytokines and mRNAs are also mainly involved in initiation and progression of diseases like liver fibrosis and cirrhosis. In fibrosis, the activation of cells takes place such as Hepatic stellate cells (HSCs). The major factors of hepatic dysfunction are Defenestration and Capillarization of liver sinusoidal endothelial cells in liver cirrhosis.

Gastrointestinal pathology deals with the diagnosis of Digestive tract and characterization of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases and treatment of some Accessory organs such as pancreas and liver.

Gastrointestinal pathology involves:

  • The evaluation of biopsy and diagnosis of gastrointestinal tissue.
  • The interaction with surgeons to ensure the clinical aspects of treatment and other diagnostic modalities.
  • Performing research in Gastrointestinal physiology, mechanisms of diseased state and Histomorphology
