Anatomical pathologists work with biopsies and resections submitted to laboratories to obtain a diagnosis and prognosis for clinicians' patients. Except where fine needle aspiration biopsy units exist, and where such biopsies are performed by pathologists / cytopathologists, they seldom have contact with patients. Pathologists communicate with registrars (in training units) and with clinicians. They have contact with patients only in academic departments.
