When the tissue sample is examined under the microscope, abnormal cells can be spotted and identified, which can help diagnose a specific condition. If the condition is already known, a biopsy can be used to assess its severity, such as degree of inflammation or even the aggressiveness of a cancer. This information is very useful when deciding on the most appropriate treatment for a particular patient.
Urine samples are also taken to detect any possible infections. Your histologies and biopsies are discreet and timely. Dr Weber will thoroughly review your results with you to ensure they are understood and to advise the best course of treatment for you following your histology or biopsy.
