    Product Description:
    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.

    Summary: Not worth the time or money
    Rating: 1
    The book is really small, has poor construction with the spine already
    partially split upon reciept,and the CD pocket was never glued in place.
    The content is VERY basic with numerous typographical errors. There
    are many dim pictures, however they are of little utility. Most of the
    pictures are taken with very low magnification and most are blurred -
    so it is hard to appreciate the detail. Definately not worth the price
    tag. Would recommend spending your time and money on something else!

    Summary: One of the best , if not the best resource for the Cytopathology of Abdominal Fine needle Aspiration biopsies
    Rating: 5
    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!!

    Summary: A very comprehensive and useful book on abdominal fine needle aspiration
    Rating: 5
    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.


    Summary: An excellent book to buy
    Rating: 5
    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.
