Slide Preparation

MAPS lab technicians process specimens quickly and efficiently. The lab processes a significant volume of slides for technical component billing only, whereby the slides are returned to the referring physician for reading. The reading physician then bills the professional component. Processed slides and blocks are cataloged and stored according to standards established by the government.

Our dermatopathologists are available for direct consultation on any case where the referring physician would like a second opinion. As dermatology trained dermatopathologists, this understanding helps make an accurate diagnosis, from the routine case to the most unusual or difficult case.To ensure the quickest turnaround times possible, MAPS utilizes an employed courier for daily weekday specimen pick-ups in the Indianapolis area.
