A practical guide to the use of fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) in evaluating breast disease, this text explains the use of FNAB in diagnosis of benign processes, common and rare malignant tumours, and occult lesion, as well as in tumour prognostication, treatment planning, and follow-up. Close attention is given to current criteria for determining the adequacy of the cytologic specimen. Two additional chapters in this edition address legal concerns such as informed consent and minimizing malpractice risk.
