Item description for TRANSABDOMINAL FINE-NEEDLE ASPIRATION BIOPSY (2ND EDITION): A Color Atlas and Monograph (WITH CD-ROM) by M.D. Grace C H Yang & Liang-Che Tao...
The 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about TRANSABDOMINAL FINE-NEEDLE ASPIRATION BIOPSY (2ND EDITION): A Color Atlas and Monograph (WITH CD-ROM)?
One of the best , if not the best resource for the Cytopathology of Abdominal Fine needle Aspiration biopsies Mar 17, 2008
If you are a cytotechnologist, a pathology resident in training, a fellow in cytopathology, a general pathologist or even if you are a so called "expert" in the field, this compact, concise and well illustrated monograph is a MUST HAVE! It is very handy and can serve as a quick reference guide during an "immediate assesment" screening while in the radiology suite. With its thousands of excellent cytology photomicrographs, one can easily find the right image(s) to illustrate any disease entity one might possibly encounter during the transabdominal aspiration procedure. The chapters are conveniently divided according to the cytopathology of each abdominal organ. After using it as a quick reference guide, one can then peruse it further and find a wealth of information with in depth discussions, pertinent diagnostic criteria, including cytohistologic correlations, ancillary techniques, immunocytochemistry staining and cytogenetic/molecular correlations where pertinent. The first chapters deal with the basics of diagnostic cytology, history, techniques of FNA smear, cell block preparation and an explanation of the Ultrafast Papanicolau stain developed by Dr. Yang. I have personally used this staining technique in my FNA practice and most especially in thyroid fine needle aspiration where papillary carcinomas can be diagnosed even on low power scanning. The chapter on lymphomas is an excellent review and includes the current WHO classifications. The CD ROM shows very detailed digital images corresponding to the images in the book itself (you don't have to keep turning the pages to find the figure referred to). I can guarantee that this is one of those reference books that will not be gathering dust in your bookshelf. It will be a timeless standard reference book in cytopathology!!
A very comprehensive and useful book on abdominal fine needle aspiration Dec 19, 2007
This is a very detailed monograph by Drs Grace Yang and Liang Tao of their experience of transabdominal FNA, together with a well written review of the cytological findings seen in abdominal FNA. The section on the adrenal gland is clear and helpful. A book that specialists in FNA cytology would find most useful on the bookshelf above the microscope.
TRANSABDOMINAL FINE-NEEDLE ASPIRATION BIOPSY (2ND EDITION): A Color Atlas and Monograph (WITH CD-ROM)
An excellent book to buy Dec 14, 2007
This is a very comprehensive yet concise and practical book with over 1,350 beautiful illustrations. The author used a series of outstanding composite figures with cytohistologic correlations, and this unique feature makes the studying of cytopathology much easier than it was generally felt by pathology residents/fellows . Readers also could benefit tremendously from the extremely sharp digital images in the CD-ROM in this book. I have found this book very very very useful during my pathology residency/fellowship training. I highly recommend it for general pathologists, cytopathologists, pathology residents and fellows and cytotechnologists.
