Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
When this test is ordered, 1 or more of the listed reflex tests will be performed and charged separately. The reviewing neuromuscular pathologist will determine the need for additional testing.
For all consultations, ancillary testing necessary to determine a diagnosis is ordered at the discretion of the Mayo Clinic neuromuscular pathologist. An interpretation, which includes an evaluation of the specimen and determination of a diagnosis, will be provided within a formal pathology report.
Frozen tissue for consultation: Appropriate additional stains may be performed and will be charged separately.
Note: Testing requested by the referring physician (immunostains, etc) may not be performed if deemed unnecessary by the reviewing Mayo neuromuscular pathologist. Electron microscopic studies are not performed on muscle biopsy specimens.
Special Instructions and Forms Describes specimen collection and preparation information, test algorithms, and other information pertinent to test. Also includes pertinent information and consent forms to be used when requesting a particular test
The evaluation of frozen muscle tissue includes a battery of enzyme histochemical stains or immunostains; other tests can be performed as indicated and will be charged separately.
