What does homogeneous mean?

Homogeneous is a word pathologists use to describe a tissue that looks the same from one area of the tissue to the next. Tissues that are similar looking in colour, shape, and size can be described as homogeneous. Homogeneous can be used to describe the way the tissue looks with or without a microscope.

The opposite of homogeneous is heterogeneous.
