What is a pathologist?
A pathologist is a doctor who specializes in medical diagnosis and who interprets and diagnoses the changes caused by disease in tissues and body fluids.
What is a frozen section?
A frozen section occurs when the pathologist freezes and microscopically examines a tissue specimen provided during a surgical procedure. This allows for an immediate diagnosis that aids in the surgical management in real-time.
What do pathologists have to do with tests done on my blood or urine?
Pathologists perform professional services as well as technical services. The variety of billing arrangements for pathologists’ services includes professional component billing. While the hospital might bill the patient for the pathologist’s technical services, the pathologist can bill the patient, the patient’s insurer, or the hospital directly for professional services.
