Description

Although there are a number of publications including pancreatic cytopathology, there is a void in current pathology literature for a practical and well-illustrated atlas. The atlas contains 450 high-resolution images (including images of the histopathologic and radiologic features of the lesions, which makes this volume equally attractive to cytopathologists and surgical pathologists alike). Clinical and radiologic examinations cannot reliably distinguish benign or inflammatory pancreatic disease from carcinoma. The increased use of pancreatic fine needle aspiration (FNA) along with advances in imaging techniques and the introduction of endoscopic ultrasound guidance have led to significantly better detection and recognition of pancreatic masses. Consequently, pancreatic cytopathology is integral to accurate pre-operative diagnosis-yet it is a challenging diagnostic area with a variety of potential pitfalls and 'look-alike' lesions. Skillful recognition and an awareness of the limitations of the procedure are essential in avoiding mis diagnosis of these dangerous lesions. "Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations" fills a void in current pathology literature. With 450 high-resolution images, including images of histopathologic and radiologic features, this practical atlas presents an integrated approach to diagnostic cytopathology that will help physician cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, and pathologists avoid potential pitfalls and 'look-alike' lesions. Written by recognized experts in the field, the extensive high-resolution color images of the characteristic features of pancreatic disease are presented with detailed descriptions that cover classic features, diagnostic clues, and potential pitfalls. "Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations" is a valuable resource for the seasoned cytopathologist, general and surgical pathologists, pathology trainees, and cytotechnologists.
