This new cytopathology resource takes a pattern-recognition approach to the interpretation of difficult aspirates, giving readers all of the tools they need to make the right diagnosis. A unique tabular design presents - at a glance - key information on the cytologic features, pitfalls, work up, and reporting for each lesion. More than 700 brilliant, full-color photographs illustrate a full range of patterns found in aspirated tissue samples.

  • Classifies lesions into common, not so common, and rare categories.
  • Shows all the basic patterns of aspirated tissue samples, giving readers a comprehensive list of differential diagnoses for each organ site.
  • Examines the broad spectrum of organs and organ systems, including lung, liver, pancreas, breast, soft tissue, central nervous system, and many more.
  • Includes representative sign out reports.
