Skin Excision Evaluation Program - Coming Soon

The new program for Perth Pathology will allow clinicians, who refer skin pathology to submit their provisional diagnosis on cases submitted for histological evaluation. Reports are issued every six months to participants highlighting the individual clinician’s accuracy in the identification of lesions and margin adequacy when removing lesions.


To qualify for CPD points, participants will need to take part in a minimum of two cycles; the first to identify areas of improvement in identification of and the resection of lesions and the second to monitor improvement in skills after the implementation of changes to methodology. There will be five intervals available over the 2017-19 triennium. The program is open to all RACGP and ACRRM members.

Histologic Diagnosis

We pride ourselves on providing prompt, accurate and clear diagnoses.  Routine cases are usually reported within 24hours of the lab receiving the biopsy specimens.  More complex cases or those requiring immunohistochemical stains may take a little longer. Results are available in hard copy, via electronic downloads or via web access

 

Immounofluorescence

Direct immunofluorescence can be performed on skin or mucosal biopsies and is useful for confirmation of immunobullousdermatoses (eg bullous pemphigoid), connective tissue disease (eg lupus erythematosus) and vasculitis (e.g. Henoch-Schonlein purpura). The tissue needs to be placed in immunofluorescence transport medium. Direct immunofluorescence cannot be performed on formalin fixed tissue. Please contact us if require the transport medium.
