Fine Needle Aspiration of Palpable Masses presents an extensive examination of the equipment, basic techniques, and staining procedures in medicine. It discusses the fundamental concepts in a direct, first line approach to the evaluation of tissue samples. It addresses the steps in painlessly and inexpensively obtaining material for diagnosis. Some of the topics covered in the book are the preparation of syringes; description of a syringe holder, volume of tissue obtained by a syringe; basic methods in using a syringe for tissue sample; preparation of smears; common type of glass slide; two-slide-pull method; and alternative to rapid preparation of smears. The definition and description of clotting of aspiration specimen are fully covered. In-depth accounts of the histologic preparation of aspirated material are provided. The general characteristics of smears prior to staining are completely presented. A chapter is devoted to stains applied to fixed smears. Another section focuses on the preparations of slides for immunocytochemical stains. The book can provide useful information to laboratory technicians, engineers, nurses, students, and researchers.

Needle biopsy is a simple, reliable, inexpensive, well-tolerated, and minimally invasive procedure for the diagnosis of tumors, both in superficial and in deep sites. Today, following the shift to a more conservative approach to tumor treatment, and in this era of "tailored" or "targeted" oncological therapies, the use of needle biopsy in the diagnosis of neoplasia, at all phases of the disease, is expected to increase dramatically. The efficacy of this technique is, however, strongly influenced by the experience of the physician performing the technique and by the pathologist’s ability to interpret the results derived from the minimal cellular harvest. The aim of this volume is to provide all of the information and insight needed to obtain a correct diagnosis based on needle biopsy evaluation. In a problem-oriented approach, the author describes the optimal interventional maneuver and biopsy-sample triage for all types of lesions. The reader is then guided through the interpretation of all possible cytological findings based on a pattern-analysis methodology. The integration of this information with clinical and preanalytical data is the best approach to obtain a correct diagnosis.

Fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy continues to evolve as a rapid, safe, and cost effective procedure for the diagnosis of palpable masses. This book is a comprehensive discussion of FNA of the head and neck area. Techniques of FNA specific to this area are described as well as techniques for handling and processing the biopsy sample and the importance of clinical evaluation and clinical correlation with the interpretation of the biopsy. The book is generously illustrated to show specific and differential diagnostic features of the large number of lesions which can affect the head and neck area.

The book is generously illustrated to show specific and differential diagnostic features of the large number of lesions which can affect the head and neck area. Celeste Powers and William Frable have written a practical text intended for the non-experts in Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy procedures. The book is intended for pathologists and clinicians interested ina more comprehensive discussion of FNAB of the head and neck area. Discussion also details procedures for handling and processing the biopsy sample and the importance of clinical evaluation and clinical correlation with the interpretation of the biopsy. Chapters on the salivary gland, lymph node, throid, parathyroid, skin, soft tissue and bone lesions are heavily illustrated to give both the general pathologist and cytopathologist specific and differential diagnostic features of the large number of lesions affecting this area. The structure of this text is engineered to present general followed by more specific information on diagnostic problems that occur with the interpretation of FNA biopsy samples.

This book provides a detailed update on all aspects of fine-needle aspiration cytology of breast lesions. It will serve readers as an up-to-date reference and atlas on both new entities in breast pathology, including borderline lesions such as flat epithelial atypia, and the classic benign and malignant lesions. Throughout, emphasis is placed on the characteristic diagnostic features as well as the common pitfalls faced by cytologists. As cytologic features can be highly variable, corresponding cytology and histology images are displayed together, enabling readers to gain a good understanding of the morphologic features of various lesions. Core-needle biopsy and fine-needle aspiration cytology are compared in depth, with attention to their relative strengths and weaknesses and indications. In addition, the impact of molecular classification of breast cancers on cytologic diagnosis is explored, and the use of molecular techniques in diagnostic cytology is discussed.
