Understanding the causes and effects of disease or injury

Working at Valleywise Health locations across the Valley and collaborating with physician colleagues across medical specialties, District Medical Group (DMG) pathologists support diagnosis of an illness and help guide treatment.

Working in labs and largely “invisible” to patients, DMG pathologists examine surgically removed samples of diseased tissue (a “biopsy”) for:

  • Bacteria

  • Cancer

  • Virus

  • Other infectious agents

DMG pathologists may also analyze blood samples, helping to monitor and track the progression of a bloodborne illness during a patient’s treatment.
