Histology is the study of tissues utilising various staining techniques under a light microscope. It is considered the Gold Standard of medical diagnosis and the diagnosis of many conditions, for example all malignancies, must be made based on histological evidence.

All cells of the human body can be classified under four main catagories:

Epithelial Tissue

Connective Tissue

Muscle Tissue
