  • A practical, pattern-based organization helps you to efficiently and confidently formulate accurate diagnoses at the microscope.
  • A unique Visual Index at the beginning of the book allows you to compare specimens to commonly seen patterns, categorize them accordingly, and turn directly to in-depth diagnostic guidance.
  • Lavishly illustrated with more than 1200 high-quality, full-color images that depict the full range of common and rare conditions.
  • Ideal for both general surgical pathologists and cytopathologists, no other single source delivers such highly practical, hands-on information needed to solve even the toughest diagnostic challenges in aspiration and exfolliative cytology.

Employing a systematic pattern recognition approach, Practical Cytopathology: A Diagnostic Approach equips you to achieve a more accurate diagnosis of aspirated and exfolliative tissue samples from all available body organs and sites. Part of the popular Pattern Recognition Series, this volume is designed to successfully guide you from identification of the dominant cytopathologic pattern, through the appropriate work-up, around the pitfalls, to the best diagnosis.

Published Reviews

"The benefits of its use are clear, especially when I am sitting in the multi-head microscope with my trainees."

"beautifully illustrated & is useful because of its pattern recognition approach to FNA cytology which would be particularly useful for trainee pathologists"

"this textbook is testament to the great effort that has been made to design a standalone reference text suitable for all levels of training."

The benefits of its use are clear, especially when I am sitting in the multi-head microscope with my trainees.
