Clinical Lab Services
At William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, our clinical lab services help provide patients with accurate diagnoses and better treatment plans. Our focus is on providing lab tests in a convenient, comfortable setting with short wait times.
UT Southwestern Medical Center labs are accredited by the College of American Pathology (CAP). We offer all lab services and procedures for adults and children, both those staying in the hospital as well as outpatients.
We use the latest technology and techniques to provide fast and accurate results. In addition to general lab services, we offer specialty services such as:
- Anatomic pathology for tissue biopsy
- Genetic and molecular tests
- Flow cytometry
- Transfusion services
What to Expect
Your physician may order a lab test as part of your diagnosis or treatment. In the days leading up to your test, you may be required to follow specific instructions, such as fasting or avoiding medications. Please talk to your physician or nurse to find out how to prepare for your test.
Your physician will follow up with you to discuss next steps.
At Clements University Hospital, medical research is an important part of our mission. We frequently conduct clinical studies that involve lab services in order to continually improve our diagnosis and treatment abilities and to help further medical knowledge overall.
