Morphology and Specials

Pathologist-in-charge: Dr. Narisha Ramparsad

The morphology and specials unit provides diagnostic services for a wide range of tests including bone marrow aspirate and trephine interpretation as well as haemoglobin electrophoresis. This unit conducts clinico-pathologic meetings in conjunction with the adult and paediatric oncology units on a monthly and bimonthly basis, respectively. Consolidated patient reports including other molecular testing done is provided to clinicians following these meetings. Samples are received from other national laboratories and international laboratories, for testing as well as review. The unit conducts research based on setting up a quality point of care service within CMJAH, exploring connectivity solutions and assessing health care workers’ perceptions regarding the use of the Hemocue instrument.
