The Department of Laboratory Medicine provides testing of blood, urine, and other fluids that Memorial Sloan Kettering adult and pediatric patients require for diagnosing, staging, and monitoring the effects of therapy.
The Department of Pathology has precise histologic and cytologic classifications and testing for clinically useful genetic alterations in tumors allowing them to match individuals with the targeted therapies that are mostly likely to benefit them.
We maintain laboratories on our main campus, several outpatient sites in Manhattan, and various regional sites including Long Island, New Jersey, and Westchester. The MSK labs report over 4.7 million tests per year. Each month, Lab Medicine transfuses over 3,500 blood products and performs collections of donor blood and other products.
We use state-of-the-art technology and the most-advanced diagnostic techniques available to analyze thousands of tissue samples. Our Pathologists generate more than 170,000 diagnostic reports each year with improved accuracy due to newer technologies. We can further classify cancers and identify specific genetic and epigenetic alterations that drive tumor growth.
As one of the world's premier cancer centers, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. The close collaboration between our physicians and scientists is one of our unique strengths, enabling us to provide patients with the best care available today as we work to discover more effective strategies to prevent, control, and ultimately cure cancer in the future. Our education programs train future physicians and scientists, and the knowledge and experience they gain at Memorial Sloan-Kettering has an impact on cancer treatment and the biomedical research agenda around the world.
