Synopsis

Orell and Sterrett's Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology Expert Consult: Online and Print by Svante R. Orell, Gregory F. Sterrett

A major revision of the leading textbook of FNA cytology Both text and illustrations provide a systematic and logical approach to the acquisition, interpretation and diagnosis of Fine Needle Aspirate biopsy specimens. Orell's FNA Cytology will assist in establishing diagnostic criteria and results in the examination of benign and malignant condition in all body systems where the technique is currently applied. The information is always presented in a clinical context: it details the role of FNA and other ancillary techniques in the investigative sequence (the cytological findings are always set in the context of the patient's clinical history, physical exam and other laboratory tests). It gives practical, technical advice on how to obtain good smears and alerts the reader as to possible diagnostic pitfalls and complications. The contents are organized in a framework of anatomical regions (rather than histopathological classifications) in order to reflect the way problems present in clinical practice. Each chapter is divided into two parts: the first deals with indications, accuracy, techniques and complications; the second illustrates the cytological patterns and their implication. Both common and rare conditions are covered.

Reviews

-This book is admirably suited for use as a quick reference, or to provide a thorough background in aspiration cytology.--Modern Pathology -This is a superb laboratory manual...provides clear cut criteria for diagnosis in each condition, well chosen illustrations and a careful analysis of problems...strongly recommended for all those who wish to improve their proficiency in this field.--Journal of Pathology -The major strengths of the book are the large number of images, both Papanicolaou stained and air dried Geimsa based stains, and its completeness, including specific chapters on pediatric, skin, splenic, and testicular aspiration just to name a few of the more uncommon topics it covers in depth. The authors have an enormous amount of experience between them, and they seem to have put that experience on the page. The book represents a terrific resource for aspiration cytologists.- Advances in Anatomic Pathology Review
