Radiologic-cytopathologic correlation is critical for an accurate interpretation of a pathologic process. Atlas of Radiologic-Cytopathologic Correlations is a generously illustrated and user-friendly atlas containing over 500 carefully selected, high resolution images from radiology and cytopathology and serves as a practical guide in the diagnostically challenging areas of deep-seated mass lesions, with additional coverage of selected areas of soft tissues, bone and some superficial sites such as thyroid. In seven chapters, radiologic and pathologic images are arranged for easy correlation and comparison of diagnostic features thoroughly illustrating all-important aspects of the radiology, cytopathology and histopathology of the key disease processes in each organ system.
Tse: Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology of the Breast
By Gary Tse
2013 (1st ed), 209 pages, $199 list
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.

By Dr. Christopher VandenBussche and Dr. Syed Ali
2014, 264 pages, 500 illus, $83 list
Pathology residents, fellows, and practitioners will welcome this cytopathology review atlas of carefully selected case scenarios drawn from the Johns Hopkins case archive. Mirroring the format of the practical segment of the pathology board examination and the most commonly used format for pathology classes and workshops, each illustrated case scenario contains multiple-choice questions along with detailed explanations and references.
Wilbur: College of American Pathologists Practical Guide to Gynecologic Cytopathology: Morphology, Management, and Molecular Methods
By David Wilbur
2008 (1st ed), 270 pages, $95 list
Every practitioner will appreciate this image-rich guide that extensively covers the principles of gynecologic cytopathology. The 270-page reference volume takes a thorough look at practical matters such as evaluations of patients and their specimens as well as criteria to determine specimen adequacy. You will find comprehensive reviews of the morphology of the vast majority of entities both benign and malignant that are routinely identified in Pap tests.
Yang: Lung and Mediastinum Cytohistology
By Grace Yang
2012 (1st ed), 290 pages, $175 list
Each volume in this richly illustrated series, sponsored by the Papanicolaou Society of Cytopathology, provides an organ-based approach to the cytological and histological diagnosis of small tissue samples. Benign, pre-malignant and malignant entities are presented in a well-organized and standardized format, 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 volume provides comprehensive coverage of lung and mediastinal cytopathology. It presents a correlation of findings from fine-needle aspiration and exfoliative cytology and histologic findings obtained via core needle biopsies and surgical specimens. With a focus on malignant tumors, the full spectrum of inflammatory disorders, infectious diseases, hyperplasias and benign tumor or tumor-like lesions are also covered in detail. With over 500 printed photomicrographs and a CD-ROM offering all images in a downloadable format, this is an important resource for all anatomic pathologists.
Yang: Thyroid Fine Needle Aspiration
By Grace Yang
2013 (1st ed), 462 pages, $175 list
This practical text and color atlas tells the story of 350 patients, covering a wide range of thyroid lesions with high quality composite images that correlate cytology with histology, and radiology with pathology. Each case includes clinical presentation and final pathology. Concise, easy-to-read text enables readers to quickly find the information they need for accurate diagnosis. 'Lookalike' lesions are grouped together so the subtle cytological differences can be appreciated. The author's practical approach explains mistakes made and lessons learned, so diagnostic pitfalls can be avoided. Logarithmic triage diagrams are provided, as well as over 2000 printed photomicrographs and a CD-ROM offering images in downloadable format. Written by a leading cytopathologist who has performed onsite assessment for over 10,000 ultrasound-guided thyroid fine needle aspirations, this is an important resource for all healthcare professionals dealing with thyroid patients, including cytopathologists, surgical pathologists, cytotechnologists, sonographers, radiologists, endocrinologists and surgeons.
Yang: Transabdominal Fine-Needle Aspiration Biopsy
By Grace Yang
2007 (2nd ed), 488 pages, $266 list
he objective of this book is to share authors' combined 30 years' experience in the fine-needle aspiration biopsy diagnosis of organs beneath the diaphragm with general pathologists. Starting from the basics, this book progresses to in-depth cytomorphologic analysis with histologic and immunohistochemical confirmation of specific entities. Cytohistological correlation is emphasized by using composite images from either resected tumor or the cell block whenever possible.
