About the Authors
  • This book represents the essentials of diagnostic cytopathology. Clinical research has confirmed the efficacy of the cytologic method of disease diagnosis and it is now considered the definitive method for identifying a wide array of malignancies. Cytohistology: Essentials and Basic Concepts comprehensively covers all the morphologic variations and landmarks in cells that can potentially signal disease. Morphologies in cancer are the primary focus but all potential changes in infectious and inflammatory disorders are also covered in detail. There is a separate section on molecular and other ancillary diagnostic techniques in cytopathology. Conceptual drawings presented in a pansystemic approach and incorporating state-of-the-art techniques show basic cytomorphologic features essential for interpretation of cytopathology specimens. Diagnostic pitfalls and challenging intellectual nuggets are also presented. A supplementary CD with images in a downloadable format is included.

    • Includes a CD with images in a downloadable format
    • A pansystemic approach: diagnostic value in specimens procured from all major body sites
    • Incorporates ancillary studies and the use of state-of-the-art techniques

    "This monograph will serve as an excellent introductory textbook for students in the field of cytopathology or for the seasoned cytopathology professional who just may need an update on criteria! It is an updated text that provides basic cytomorphologic concepts critical to the interpretation of cytologic specimens." The ASC Bulletin (2011), Donna K. Russell, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester
