Soft Tissue & Bone Pathology
The Soft Tissue & Bone Pathology Consultative Service offers comprehensive evaluation of benign and malignant neoplasms arising in soft tissue and bone, as well as mesenchymal neoplasms of the skin and parenchymal organs.
These lesions are extremely rare and diverse in histologic appearance and biologic behavior, making accurate diagnosis, grading, and staging especially challenging.
