Gastrointestinal pathology is the subspecialty of surgical pathology that deals with the diagnosis and classification of non-neoplastic and neoplastic diseases of the digestive tract and accessory organs, such as the liver and pancreas.
Every year, digestive diseases affect 1 in 5 Americans-at least 60 million individuals in the United States per year. Digestive Diseases account for About 50 million hospital visits, almost 25 million endoscopic tests, and more than 20 million gastrointestinal specimens directed to pathologists account-totaling $87 billion in direct medical costs due to gastrointestinal disease.
Approximately 8% of the 20 + million gastrointestinal biopsies currently performed each year are examined by pathologists with fellowship training in digestive health and disease, with 400 fellowship-trained gastrointestinal pathologists in operation in the United States. Highly trained general surgical pathologists, including those who have a particular interest in gastrointestinal pathology, study the remaining 90 to 92 percent of biopsies.
The global anatomic pathology market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.1 percent over the forecast period, from USD 33.3 billion in 2020 to USD 46.8 billion in 2025.
