Bone Histomorphometry Laboratory

Edward F. McCarthy, M.D.

Primary Appointment in Pathology; Secondary Appointment in Orthopedic Surgery

We have a bone biopsy histomorphology laboratory which is available for diagnostic problems and research. Our lab is able to process and cut undecalcified bone specimens. We are interested in metabolic bone disease and, in collaboration with other researchers, are studying the causes and response to treatment of metabolic bone diseases such as osteogenesis imperfecta and renal osteodystrophy. We are also interested in primary and secondary bone tumors. We are studying certain bone tumors, particularly cartilage tumors, with respect to rate of turnover as depicted in immunochemical techniques.
