Our Service

UF Health Pathology Laboratories' Breast Pathology Division is home to a group of industry-leading pathologists with comprehensive diagnostic expertise and services relating to the pathology of benign and malignant disorders of the breast.

In addition to our evaluation by conventional histology, we routinely utilize a quantitative panel of specialized immunohistological and molecular techniques. Our estrogen, progesterone, HER-2/neu and Mib-1 are quantitated by the ChromaVision ACIS technology. We work with oncologists to send out samples for oncotype diagnosis and also perform histologic evaluation of implant capsules.

Available methodologies include:
  • Light microscopy
  • Immunohistochemistry
  • Quantitative immunohistochemistry
  • Electron microscopy
  • DNA ploidy
  • Flow cytometry
  • Image cytometry
  • FISH analysis for HER-2/neu
