Pathological Laboratory is one of the most important department in any hospital. Human body is made of different organs which work in sync to keep you going. If there is a problem in any of the organ then its functioning gets impaired. This malfunctioning of the organ is reflected in the values of the various blood and urine tests. If there is any change in the shape, size or echotexture of the organ then it would be detected through imaging but any adverse change in the functioning of the organ is detected through tests done in the pathological laboratory. Normally the functioning of the organ gets impaired before any physical changes in the organ and therefore the importance of pathological tests cannot be overstated.
