Atlas of Gynecologic Cytology

by Ossama Tawfik, Marilee Means

This book describes about cervical cancer which is one of the most common malignancies worldwide, yet it is clearly preventable by population screening. The significant decline in both the incidence and mortality of cervical cancer is attributed to the Papanicolaou (Pap) test. A team of cytopathologists and cytotechnologists at the University of Kansas Medical Center has been working for 2 years to evaluate the feasibility of utilizing imaging technology (digital pathology) of cellblock (CB) preparations from Pap samples. The intended goal is to establish a digitally assisted remote (web-based) complete, expedited and integrated platform for review of Pap CB samples for global cytologic consultation. The introductory chapters discuss the historical background and future of the Pap test and the potential impact of automation and digitization on the field. The subsequent chapters discuss the various cytologic changes that are seen in CB preparations and their counterparts in liquid-based or conventional material.
