We have over 37 years of experience analyzing the pathology of lungs and other tissues with known or suspected injuries from exposures to occupational, environmental or pharmacological materials. This laboratory performs specialized electron microscopic and other analyses to identify foreign particulate materials in tissues, as well as other samples. Examples of materials which can be identified include silica, asbestos, talc, aluminum, beryllium, welding fumes, hard metals, gadolinium, etc. Dr. Abraham provides assistance in research and diagnosis evaluating medical and medico-legal cases.
