    Description

    This is the first atlas dedicated to touch preparation cytopathology. Written by established pathologists who are at the cutting edge of this minimally-invasive practice, the Atlas of Touch Preparation Cytopathology presents a comprehensive overview and visual reference guide to the diagnostic applications of touch preparations. This visually-stunning book reviews touch preparations corresponding to all major body systems and includes chapters on specimen handling and processing, intraoperative use during frozen sections, as well as on ancillary testing using touch preps. While most cytopathology atlases have images of smears and fluids, they have very little discussion of touch preparations making this volume a one-of-a-kind resource.

    The authors, using many picturesque examples in the text, not only include detailed visual and textual discussion of touch preparations but also provide comparative presentations to facilitate correlation with histopathology, FNA smears and ancillary test results. This total coverage illuminates key findings and important considerations of this technique that pathologists can learn from. Written with the practicing pathologist in mind, the Atlas of Touch Preparation Cytopathology is an invaluable book in today’s pathology practice where there is increasing utilization of small biopsies that can benefit from intraprocedural evaluation and assessment to maximize diagnostic yield.

    Key Features:

    • Covers various methods of touch preparation and addresses measures to avoid pitfalls.
    • Includes techniques that can serve as helpful tricks during intraprocedural evaluation of small biopsies and at the time of frozen section.
    • Comprehensive coverage of different body systems that are typically sampled with small biopsies and amenable to touch preparations.
    • Contains over 500 touch preparation images and includes corresponding histopathologic figures and ancillary studies.
