About Sonic Skin Dx

Complex diagnoses demand a holistic approach involving the collaboration of clinicians and the histopathologists, as well as specialist colleagues in disciplines such as genetics, microbiology, haematology, immunology and biochemistry. The active collaboration of expert pathologists from across the country and between disciplines is a key strength of Sonic Skin Dx.

Sonic Skin Dx's team of pathologists includes nationally and internationally recognised experts who remain dedicated members of the local medical community. All dermatopathology is performed by local expert histopathologists, who regularly collaborate with national colleagues to maintain excellence in skin pathology reporting.

Skin pathology spans several disciplines within a pathology laboratory. Results provided through additional testing within genetic pathology, microbiology, immunoserology, biochemistry and haematology all regularly contribute to the histopathological diagnosis of skin disorders. As a comprehensive laboratory, Sonic Skin Dx provides you and your patients with seamless access to specialised pathology services. The onsite consultation and synergistic approach between reporting pathologists from different subspecialties helps to provide a cohesive report on a patient’s condition.

A depth and breadth of expertise in all areas of surgical pathology that impact on dermatopathology. Sonic Skin Dx dermatopathologists include internationally recognised experts in lymphoma and in soft tissue tumour pathology.

Gained by referrals received from a broad base of clinicians, covering every aspect of dermatopathology. The range of material seen in our laboratories includes neoplastic and inflammatory disorders of the skin itself, as well as a large number of related gynaecological, male genital, dental and ocular conditions, and disorders of the hair and nails.

Some conditions occur only rarely, however, we offer highly specialised services in the more uncommon skin lesions due to the large number of specimens we receive from across all areas of Australia.

This is backed by an ongoing commitment to ensure that our services and supporting technology remain at the forefront of our discipline.

Our pathologists' commitment to professional development enables Sonic Skin Dx to provide you with the latest information through publications, and to deliver workshops and group learning.
