About this book

As compared with cytology's use in other organ systems, direct cytological examination of the endometrium is not a widely practiced diagnostic procedure. This volume highlights endometrial cytology as an effective method for ensuring endometrial normalcy and discovering and diagnosing malignant and premalignant states.

Endometrial Cytology with Tissue Correlations covers the background, collection technique, diagnostic criteria and pitfalls, as well as reliability of endometrial cytology.

This volume, part of the Essentials in Cytopathology book series, fits into the lab coat pocket and is ideal for portability and quick reference. Each volume in the series is heavily illustrated with a full color art program, while the text follows a user-friendly outline format.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This monograph, part of the Essentials in Cytopathology series, focuses on collection techniques, diagnostic criteria, and diagnostic pitfalls of endometrial cytopathology. … Cytopathologists and surgical pathologists … will benefit from this book. … Gynecologists also may find this book to be a valuable resource for interpreting cytology and surgical pathology reports. … it can provide valuable information to properly triage patients. The numerous high quality images and user-friendly outline format make this a welcome addition to the Essentials in Cytopathology series." (Maura F. O’Neil , Doody’s Review Service, October, 2009)
