Sometimes called the “doctor’s doctor,” pathologists are physicians who use laboratory medicine and technology to identify and diagnose disease. Pathologists are relied on by every medical specialist to provide a range of services, from prenatal testing to cancer screening, to guide the clinical team on how to treat their patients.

The right test at the right time can make all the difference in diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. In fact, pathology and laboratory results comprise as much as 70% of the information in a patient’s health record. View the CAP’s video—Meet Health Care’s Secret Weapons: Pathologists—to learn more about the pathologist’s role in patient care.
