About this book

Respiratory cytopathology is indispensable in the workup of patients suspected of having lung cancer requiring cytologic evaluation and is used increasingly in immunocompromised patients for the identification of infectious diseases. Currently, there is no single text devoted exclusively to Pulmonary Cytology. Color Atlas of Pulmonary Cytopathology is the only text to include, under one cover, up-to-date information on every aspect of Respiratory Cytopathology. The atlas includes techniques of bronchoscopy, brochoalveolar lavage, and fine needle aspiration biopsy, a detailed section on cytopreparatory techniques, liberal use of images on histomorphology to complement cytology, emphasis on diagnostic pitfalls, a detailed section on cytopathology of non-neoplastic conditions, unusual and uncommon lesions, cytology of metastatic lung cancers to other body sites, and a section on pediatric pulmonary cytology. Abundantly illustrated with over 1300 color images on 108 plates, the atlas presents not only the usual cytohistologic patterns of various disease entities, but also focuses on differential diagnostic problems and depicts the differentiating features. Over 75 tables summarize cytologic criteria and differentiating features. A must-have reference for cytotechnology students, cytotechnologists, pathologists, pathology residents, cytopathologists, as well as pulmonologists.
