Explanation:
_no abnormal/pathologic findings_. Also common: _negative findings_, or just _negative_. ---
For instance in summaries of diagnostic tests (e.g. x-ray reports, other medical reports, technical papers referring to such or other reports) the terms "negative", or "negative findings" are very commonly used; e.g.:
AltaVista (English) "negative findings + mri: 132 pages found.

AltaVista (German) : "ohne pathologsichne befund" : 32 pages found, e.g.:

Degenerative Hirnerkrankungen sind zumindest teilweise über ihre Pathologie definiert und somit kann die Diagnose ohne pathologischen Befund prinzipiell nur vorläufig gestellt werden.

Liegen rezidivierende Harnwegsinfekte vor, und sind die übrigen Untersuchungen ohne pathologischen Befund, sollte eine antibiotische Langzeittherapie (z.B. Nitrofurantoin, Trimethoprim-Cotrimoxazol oder Cephalosporin) zunächst für ein halbes Jahr erfolgen.

just a guess


Explanation:
o.b.B. = ohne besonderen Befund [Duden, WB der Abkürzungen]

If this is not a typographical error (which I assume it isn't) could imagine that the o.p.B = ohne pathologischen Befund
However, this is only a guess -- I have nothing to back this up, but maybe it'll help steer you in the right direction

Explanation:
As in No Pathology - keine Pathologie, meaning ohne pathologischen Befund. See the URL for a good example of how this is used.

Cheerio,
