Description

Fine needle aspiration is one of the principle diagnostic tools used in taking cells from possible malignant lesions in the breast. These cells are then subjected to cytological analysis and, depending on the result, the surgical/radiotherapy treatments can be planned. The technique can present problems in three regards. Firstly, in taking a sample from the right place; secondly, in making sure enough cells have been taken for diagnosis and thirdly, in making the correct diagnosis. This book illustrates the radiological, cytological and histological appearance of the various lesions encountered in diseases of the breast. It will be a practical guide to the interpretation and diagnosis of cytopathological specimens of the breast.
