"The practice of pathology has witnessed a paradigm shift in the past 10 years. We are being asked to do more and more with less and less tissue. No longer is a body cavity being opened to obtain diagnostic tissue. With modern imaging technologies, the interventional radiologists, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists and surgeons now provide fine needle aspiration cytology and miniscule biopsies and for diagnosis and molecular testing. This comprehensive cytopathology textbook is written in the easy-to-access format popularized by the Amirsys surgical pathology, histology and radiology textbooks. It is written with the busy cytopathology professional in mind. The "key facts" provide quick criteria needed for diagnosis or adequacy evaluation at the time of procedure, whereas the rest of the chapter is written in a consistent, succinct, synoptic format, which is an easy read and full of information. The book covers all aspects of cytology, from gyn to non-gyn exfoliative and fine-needle aspiration, including neuropathology squash preparations, ophthalmic cytopathology, quality improvement, instrumentation, immunohistochemistry, and molecular testing as they apply to cytology, cell blocks and miniscule biopsy specimens."--Provided by publisher.

This manual for diagnostic cytologists offers detailed guidance on diagnostic problems likely to be encountered in everyday practice. It encompasses exfoliative and aspiration cytology of all major nongynecologic body sites. Each chapter opens with an algorithm that presents the reader with the relevant microscopic findings, the most important additional findings, and the differential diagnostic possibilities and problems in a clear and easily remembered form. Another important feature is the wealth of high-quality color photomicrographs, which clearly document the visual appearances of the most important lesions and highlight the differential diagnostic difficulties. The accompanying text contains helpful general remarks and presents further relevant information on diagnostics, differential diagnostic procedures, and auxiliary methods. Besides established cytologists and pathologists, cytopathologists in training and cytotechnologists will find this book to be a valuable aid.

The text of this second edition has been completely revised, planned and written with two goals in mind: to help those learning cytopathology for the first time, including pathology residents, fellows, and cytotechnology students, and to provide a resource for those who have experience in cytopathology but are faced with a difficult diagnostic dilemma. It reflects the fact that diagnostic criteria have become more refined, some types of aspiration are now more common, and terminology has changed.
