Urologic Pathology


The ADX Western Pathology urologic pathology service offers expert diagnoses of prostatic, urinary bladder, testicular, and kidney neoplasms and malignancies. We utilize cutting edge immunohistochemical studies as a supplement to histologic evaluation. This is particularly true with our prostatic biopsies where the most up to date molecular markers are used to distinguish between difficult benign and malignant prostatic lesions.

ADX Western Pathology offers sextant prostate biopsy kits to those urologists who prefer this collection method. We also offer expert cytologic interpretation of urine and urinary tract specimens for follow-up and diagnosis of bladder neoplasms. For difficult renal tumors, cytogenetic studies are available through our relationship with reference laboratories.

As Managing Director for ADX Western Pathology Dr. Marcus Erling has concentrated on prostate and urologic pathology since 1984. He is a member of the International Society of Urologic Pathology and has gained the respect and continued support of many urologists throughout the state of Nevada. Dr. Erling is currently Professor and Iterim Chair of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at University of Nevada, School of Medicine.
