DIF is useful in the diagnosis of suspected autoimmune disease, connective tissue diseases and vasculitis. The staining patterns seen in tissue samples may be specific to a disease or may need to be interpreted with the clinical and histological findings.
KorPath helps to facilitate doctors who prefer to read their own slides or who have an in-house pathologist, but not their own pathology laboratory. These physicians can have their specimens sent to KorPath with a request for “slide preparation” and the slides will be prepared within 24 hours.
After preparing these slides, KorPath will also include pre-printed, custom reports that contain the gross description of the specimen and the patient’s information that has been provided. These reports will also have areas for your in-house pathologist to complete with the final diagnosis and certification.
Mobile Pathology Services
KorPath offers a mobile frozen section service to physicians in Florida. Upon scheduling, KorPath will provide a fully staffed mobile unit (including a histotechnologist and board-certified pathologist) to process and interpret your frozen sections via telepathology in minutes. This service allows your patient to receive a diagnosis prior to leaving the office. You can continue to efficiently see other patients while the slides are being prepared and analyzed.
