The neuropathology section provides diagnostic services for both biopsy and autopsy specimens. Expertise is available for interpreting brain, spinal cord, muscle and nerve biopsies. Current immunohistochemical and molecular studies are utilized in tumor diagnosis and to aid in choosing treatment and determining prognosis. Examination of muscle biopsies routinely utilizes a wide variety of muscle enzyme stains as well as electron microscopy when necessary for diagnosis. Examination of autopsy brains and/or spinal cords for diagnosis is another routine part of the service.
