  • Liver biopsies in particular benefit from laboratory values including transaminases, alkaline phosphatase and/or GGT, as well as appropriate serologies if hepatitis is suspected.

  • The clinical diagnosis and endoscopic appearance greatly aids in interpreting GI mucosal biopsies, especially in circumstances where colitis, Barrett's or neoplasm is suspected.

  • If special studies are anticipated or requested, sending selected paraffin blocks will expedite analysis.
