Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology Interpretation and Diagnostic Difficulties
Description Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) is a popular and effective technique for quick tissue diagnosis. Beginning with an introduction to the technique of FNAC, this book provides a concise, logical and systemic approach to the diagnosis of lesions that may occur in different parts of the body. The author discusses the various diagnostic difficulties and problems with the interpretation of FNAC. Emphasis is placed on cytomorphology (the structure of body cells), but immunocytochemistry (a microscopic method that uses antibodies to localise proteins in tissue sections and cell cutures), and other ancillary techniques, are also discussed. The text is accompanied by numerous high quality coloured figures of individual lesions with detailed descriptions.
