The term histology refers to the study of the microscopic structure of tissues and organs. Histology is a central subject in university degree courses dedicated to human, dental, and molecular medicine. The aim is to acquire detailed knowledge of the structure, form, and function of cells, tissues, and organs. This fundamental knowledge is important for the reliable detection of disease-related changes in day-to-day clinical practice and in drawing conclusions regarding the potential causes of diseases and ways of treating them.
