Dermatopathology

A visit to a dermatologist often results in a surgical procedure such as a biopsy or excision in which a tissue specimen (sample of skin) is removed for diagnostic evaluation. This tissue specimen is then processed for microscopic examination by an off-site dermatopathology lab, CTA (Curtis Thompson, MD and Associates) Laboratory in Tigard, OR.  Drs. Dawson and Datloff then read and interpret the slide(s) to render a diagnosis. Occasionally the slide(s) may be sent to a dermatopathology consultant for a second opinion. It can take 1-2 weeks to obtain the pathology report.
