Orell & Sterrett’s Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology 5e provides you with a logical and systematic approach to the acquisition, interpretation and diagnosis of FNA biopsy samples. It is an ideal resource for all those requiring an authoritative and systematic review of the cytological findings in those malignant and benign lesions likely to be the target of FNA. The book is lavishly illustrated with high quality colour images that demonstrate the cytological features as well as their relevant immunohistochemical and molecular findings. Organized into anatomical regions, each chapter is consistently organized into two parts: the first deals with clinical and technical aspects followed by a systematic presentation of cytological findings. This is your perfect practical bench resource for daily reference in the laboratory.

"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."
