Anatomic Pathology Laboratory

The Anatomic Pathology Laboratory is another critical component of pathology services. In the lab, which processes tissue and cytology samples, experienced pathologists analyze biopsies, organs, organ samples and autopsies. They also analyze cell smears and suspensions to report diagnoses that guide current and future patient treatments. Lexington Medical Center is the only Midlands hospital providing anatomic pathology services seven days a week.



General Gynecology

Great care is taken to maintain a highly dependable and accurate diagnostic service for pathology exams of uterine cervix and endometrial specimens.

Placental Pathology

Our group can provide expert examination of the fetal placenta after delivery.


Urologic Biopsy Processing

Our program has an outstanding process for accurate diagnosis, as well as for providing the details patients and urologists need to inform treatment decisions.

Five-Day Breast Biopsy Diagnosis

This special program works with stereotactic and ultrasound-guided core biopsies and provides next-morning reporting. Final pathology diagnoses are available within five days or less from enrollment in program.

Liver Biopsy

Pathologists are expertly able to process and diagnose percutaneous needle biopsies with the benefit making blood data available to interpreting pathologists.

Molecular Testing of Tumors

We currently select the appropriate specimen and send these studies out to reference laboratories.


Gastrointestinal Pathology

Through exceptional multidisciplinary sharing of case information, our pathologists are able to extend interpretations to an unusual degree of precision when evaluating biopsies of the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, small intestine, colon and rectum.


Deep FNA

Many hospitals address this service by only processing the biopsy core. We provide an intensity of service that is unequaled anywhere in the U.S. We process core and cytology specimens as a pathologist and a cytotechnology representative both attend and participate in these procedures with the biopsying radiologist.


Post-Mortem and Autopsy

Our pathology group has provided post-mortem testing and autopsy services to the Lexington County Coroner since 1971. With a rate of about 200 cases per year, the findings are valued by the coroner, as well as our department as we press for ever-increasing quality services in our health services district.
