Histology or microscopic anatomy; Histology is also known as the microscopic anatomy. Its own perspective is from the microscopic view; it considers the microscopy of different structures of the body.
It studies the morphology of these structure employing different dyes for staining to help differentiate their cells from other cells. Histology looks at the organelles of each cell and considers its characteristics to the level of the tissue.
These are done so that one can know when the cell is abnormal. When a normal cell has been studied, it serves as a control to the detection of abnormal cells.
Histology also employ other technical mechanics other than the microscope, like the microtome, water bath, dispenser etc, to help extract the tissue and reduce it to a slide form so that each of the components can be studied microscopically
. In attaining this goal, many chemicals come into play.
The clinical importance of histology is that it can be used to explain different type of diseases and abnormalities and suggest possible cure as the abnormal cell organelle has been detected.
In the basic level of the medical school, histology just comprises only the study of the microscopic view of normal and abnormal tissues of the body.
In case of tissue fluids, smears are taken and are studied microscopically.
