Subspecialty Trained Gastrointestinal Pathologists

Miraca Life Sciences expert pathology services are committed to improving patient health. Our commitment to unparalleled subspecialty pathology, ongoing clinical education, research and innovation allows clinicians to determine optimal treatment the first time, giving patients the best possible chance for recovery. By pinpointing the right diagnosis and right treatment at the beginning, we help conserve healthcare resources and reduces costs for everyone.

Miraca Life Sciences could not achieve these results without attracting the best doctors and by offering an academic-style environment of ongoing education and research, enhanced by a staff comprising some of the country's finest subspecialist pathologists from whom to learn and collaborate. Our GI pathologists have a collective 500 years of post-training pathology experience having trained and held faculty positions at leading academic institutions such as Johns Hopkins, Harvard (Brigham and Women's and Beth Israel), Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, M.D. Anderson, Duke, Cornell, University of Texas, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Medical Center among others. Many continue to hold clinical professorships, including positions at University of Texas-Southwestern, Tulane and Tufts University medical centers. Our pathologists have published more than 1,500 peer-reviewed studies and more than 100 textbook chapters and textbooks.

The GI pathologists of Miraca Life Sciences combine their collective experience in daily consensus conferences to discuss challenging and interesting cases. Our experts from around the country gather to ensure the most accurate diagnoses and adoption of the highest, state-of-the-art standards for analyses of patient samples. Monthly lectures, journal review conferences, disease-specific quality assurance, and continuous terminology and criteria updates keep our pathologists current with the very best practices in the field and ensures optimal patient care. In addition, we actively conduct research, leveraging an unparalleled patient case repository and presenting regularly at the major national meetings for gastroenterologists and pathologists.

The comprehensive Miraca Life Sciences Quality Assurance program documents and improves quality. Cases are audited internally and externally for difficult and ambiguous cases. Despite the difficulty of these cases and well-documented interobserver variations among experts, these external reviews have resulted in a remarkable concurrence rate of nearly 100% with other GI pathology experts at major academic medical institutions.

The Miraca pathology interface with EMA Derm streamlines the work, making it easier and more efficient. I really like being able to pull up the path results on the iPad and review them with the patient.
