Every practitioner will appreciate this image-rich guide that extensively covers the principles of gynecologic cytopathology. The 270-page reference volume takes a thorough look at practical matters such as evaluations of patients and their specimens as well as criteria to determine specimen adequacy. You will find comprehensive reviews of the morphology of the vast majority of entities both benign and malignant that are routinely identified in Pap tests.
In the wake of CLIA-mandated individual proficiency testing, the CAP Cytopathology Committee envisioned this manual to cover both fundamental and advanced gynecologic cytology practice and to assist practitioners in their daily work as well as to “brush-up” prior to a proficiency test.
To ensure that this is a complete resource, the authors included background material relevant to the understanding of basic cervical carcinogenesis, including the role of human papillomavirus and its vaccines. Principles relevant to the management of the cytology laboratory, such as specimen coding, quality assurance, and personnel management are expertly presented as well. A review of CAP programs in gynecologic cytology rounds out the volume.
