Brain Tumors

Diagnostic Spectrum

The diagnostic activities in the area of brain tumors include intraoperative consultations, histopathological evaluation, and the use of specific immunohistochemical and molecular markers. An area of special expertise is the evaluation of small biopsies obtained by sterotactic serial biopsy. Diagnostic neuropathology of brain tumor relies on a close collaboration with the clinical specialties involved in patient care and treatment, including General and Stereotactic Neurosurgery, Neurology, Internal Medicine, the Clinic of Tumor Biology, and the Department of General Pathology.

Cooperations, Reference Pathology, Clinical Trials

Pathology reports are provided in English on request (for clinical trials or international collaborations). Tumor material can be referred to us for a second opinion. Likewise, we send material to national and international reference pathologists in particularly difficult cases as well as routinely for clinical trials and collaborations.

Request forms for Neuropathological Evaluation and Clinical Information

For efficient processing of the diagnostic specimens, informations of the source and type of tissue, relevant clinical history, and information on radiological findings are essential. Please refer to the appropriate forms available for download, or contact our staff for further information.
