4th International Conference and Exhibition on Pathology
July 13-15, 2015 New Orleans, USA
 

Theme: Technological Construction of Pathology

Pathology is a branch of medical science primarily concerning the examination of organs, tissues, and bodily fluids in order to make a diagnosis of disease. Pathology describes the scientific study of disease which can be described as any abnormality that is causing changes in the structure or function of body parts. In pathology, the causes, mechanisms and extent of disease may be examined. Pathology is a root cause to understand the mechanism of a disease. It is a subject for the professionals who looks beyond the clinical expectations.

Pathology specimens on an average currently number approximately 73,000 per year and autopsies number approximately 120 per year. Approximately 600 specimens are processed for electron microscopy annually including over 350 renal biopsies per year. The Pathology Advanced Diagnostics Laboratory performs over approximately Urovysion tests, KRAS tests, B and T gene rearrangements HPV genotypes, DNA ploidy studies, and small-round-blue-cell PCR panels annually. The global digital pathology market is estimated to reach $5.7 billion by 2020. The In vitro diagnostics market revenue is expected to reach $74.65 billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 5.34% during 2014-2020. Diagnostic Medicine market growth rate is 5-7% yearly.

Importance & Scope:

      Pathology is a Major Field in modern medical Practice and Diagnosis. Pathology specimens currently number approximately 73,000 per year and on an average autopsies number approximately 120 per year.
