Each volume in this richly illustrated series, sponsored by the Papanicolaou Society of Cytopathology, provides an organ-based approach to the cytologic and histologic diagnosis of small tissue samples including fine-needle aspiration biopsy, cell block samples and core, pinch and forceps biopsies. This volume provides a practical approach to preparing and assessing pancreatic aspiration, core biopsy and brushing samples. Benign, pre-malignant and malignant entities are presented in a well-organized and standardized format supported with high-resolution color photomicrographs, tables, tabulated specific morphologic criteria and appropriate ancillary testing algorithms. Example vignettes allow the reader to assimilate the diagnostic principles in a case-based format. This unique series strengthens the bridge between surgical pathology and cytopathology, providing the pathologist with the ability to diagnose small tissue samples with confidence. The CD-ROM packaged with the printed book contains all the images in a downloadable format, making this a valuable resource for practicing and trainee pathologists.
