Neuropathology

The Neuropathology service provides expert diagnostic and consultation for specimens from the central and peripheral nervous system for neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders.  Modalities used include immunohistochemical and molecular testing, and electron microscopy for diagnosis and prognostic markers.  Post-mortem brains are assessed for dementias, and prion and other diseases.  Diagnoses also are provided for muscle biopsies, including inflammatory, congenital, and metabolic and storage disorders, among others.
