Anatomic Pathology Market

Anatomic pathology is a subspecialty of pathology. It concerns diagnosing diseases based on the detailed examination of body organs and tissues. Anatomic pathology is a pretty extraordinary field of medicine involving critical tissue analysis. The detailed scrutiny enables the doctors to explore the cause of the disease, its effects on the body, treatment methods, and the prognosis of the disease.

Industrial Trends and Forecast

The anatomic pathology industry is expanding due to the increased prevalence of cancers and targeted diseases. Therefore, countries with an increased number of high-risk cancer patients contribute significantly to the global anatomic pathology market.

Certain other factors are responsible for the increased growth of the market. Some of the important ones include the high importance of screening tests, the availability of investments, and most importantly, the growing focus on precision medicine. In contrast, product recall and a lack of skilled professionals hamper the market’s growth.

Regardless of the presence of barriers, the anatomic pathology market showed a significant CAGR of 7.0% in 2021. It is expected to expand from $35.1 billion in 2021 to $49.1 billion in 2026 if it keeps growing at this pace.

Subdivisions of Anatomic Pathology

The laboratory technician’s primary task is to analyze blood and body fluid samples. In contrast, the work of anatomic pathologists is much more advanced. They evaluate tissue specimens, including smears, biopsies, and whole-body evaluation at autopsy.

Based on the examination method, anatomic pathology is segmented into three main subdivisions.


Histopathology involves the examination of samples such as tissue sections, biopsies, and surgical resections under a microscope. These samples are retrieved by making incisions in the lesion or by an invasive technique such as core needle biopsy or endoscopy.

Before the examination, histopathologists stain the tissue with special dyes making it visible under a microscope. In some cases, they would also need antibodies to identify different components of the tissues.

Histopathologists with information about the actual tissue histology can easily interpret the abnormalities. They evaluate the type and extent of the disease and plan appropriate treatment and management plan for the problem.


Cytopathology involves the examination of a single cell or a group of cells. In this diagnostic technique, the sample is retrieved from tissues easily accessible from the exterior. The standard method used for cytology testing is fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). FNAC involves inserting a needle in the palpable tissues such as the thyroid gland or breast lesion. The needle helps to retrieve cells that are then examined to look for any abnormality.

Another way to get smaller tissue samples is to scrap the tissue surface with special instruments. The most common example of a scraping technique is a cervical smear in which tissue scrapings are taken from the female’s cervix to look for the presence of dysplastic changes. It is an important screening test for the early diagnosis of cervical carcinoma.

Moreover, cytopathology is also helpful for the examination of pediatric lesions. It has numerous advantages over histopathology as its results are formed within hours rather than days.

Autopsy Pathology

Autopsy pathology is an essential subdivision of anatomic pathology that involves examining the deceased person to identify the cause of the death. Autopsy pathology is mainly known by its common names, such as postmortem examination or autopsy.

Autopsy pathology is much helpful in cases where the disease or any cause of death, for whatever reason, was not identified before death. It helps to evaluate the nature and extent of the disease. Moreover, it also helps to understand the pathological changes leading to the patient’s death.

Over the years, autopsy pathology has helped doctors to develop a better understanding of the disease. Moreover, it also answers most of the questions the deceased’s family members asked.
