It is a great privilege and honor to be the 4th president of the college of chemical pathologists of Sri Lanka for 2018-19 year. I thank all members in entrusting me with this immense responsibility and previous office bearers who have built the college up to what it is today.
The process of analyzing chemical substances in bodily fluids dates back to 19th century and has progressed to what it is today. The results of such testing help in nearly 60% of clinical decisions taken day to day as many illnesses are reflected as a disturbance in the body's chemistry.
Chemical pathology is the branch in medicine responsible for delivering accurate clinical biochemistry test reports to diagnose diseases and manage patients. Chemical pathology encompasses management of pre-analytical, analytical and post analytical phases, institution of new technologies, process development, clinical audit, research, training, understanding of biochemical basis of disease and clinical interpretation of biochemistry test results. The responsibility of the college of chemical pathologists is to uncover these multiple facets to the rest of the medical communities and the public.
