Pulmonary Pathology Consultation Service (including Lung Transplantation)
The Division of Anatomic Pathology at Montefiore
Hospital of the University of Pittsburgh Medical
Center (UPMC) offers pathology consultation services for pulmonary and thoracic
related diseases. These include interpretation of biopsies related to
infectious, lymphoproliferative, immunologic, pleural and neoplastic lung disease.
If necessary, a variety of immunohistochemical and in-situ hybridization techniques
can be applied as diagnostic tools. Since the
UPMC is a major transplant center, evaluation of
biopsies of lung allografts is a special area od expertise.
