We are the second largest pathology department in the nation and conduct more than eight million tests a year. This allows us to lead the way toward early discovery of cancer through cellular testing based on your unique blood and tissue samples. We see approximately 9,000 cases every year. People come to us for expert pathology opinion from all over; we provide nearly 700 second opinions each year.
Mount Sinai is also helping pathology move toward a more proactive approach. We want to find cancer before it finds you. We are developing protocols and procedures to predict and prevent cancer and other diseases of the breast.
