Histology and Cytology


Histology is the study of tissues and organs through the examination of the microscopical architecture of tissues and the relationship between the different types found within tissues and organs. Diseases such as inflammatory, benign abnormal growth, infections and cancer are diagnosed by this method.

Cytopathology is the study of cellular disease and the use of cellular changes for the diagnosis of disease.
