The Clinical Pathology Laboratories, unless specifically stated under the description of each laboratory, accepts consultations in all areas of clinical pathology for second opinions on the following:
- Complex testing (e.g., flow cytometry, hemoglobin electrophoresis, antimicrobial resistance, etc)
- Referral for patients for special procedures (i.e. transfusion medicine in concert with primary medical care team)
- For general assistance with the performance and interpretation of all laboratory testing
For each laboratory, there is a clinical pathology resident on call who should be contacted directly via the Mass General Brigham Paging system for inquiries about consultations and how to send materials or refer patients.
