Cardiac pathology is an important area of pathology but is not comprehensively taught at many medical centers due to the paucity of cardiac specimens outside of the autopsy services. Our website uses high definition images obtained from gross pathology specimens and histological slides, both at a resolution of 1800x1350 pixels.

The images presented here represent a wide variety of heart pathology cases, including acquired diseases, transplantation pathology, idiopathic diseases, tumor pathology, etc., and are accompanied by brief morphological descriptions. The histological images are shown at different optical magnifications and include conventional stains such as hematoxylin-eosin, PAS, trichrome stains, as well as immunohistochemical stains. Also included are some images from normal tissues and from positive and negative controls for the corresponding special stains.

Although aimed in particular at pathologists, our website may serve as a reference guide to medical students, residents & fellows, as well as to cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, general practitioners and allied practitioners.
