Cytopathology

PAP Smear

  • This is one of the easiest screening tests available for detecting cervical cancer / precancerous conditions
  • Inadequate specimens are responsible for most of the false negative diagnoses

Liquid based cytology

  • Liquid based cytology offer improved means of sampling the cervix and added advantage of HPV sampling with the same specimen.

FNAC

  • Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) and Fine Needle Non Aspiration Cytology (FNNAC) are simple outpatient procedures where a fine needle is inserted into the palpable lump and the material obtained is smeared onto glass slides, stained with Papanicolaou and MGG stain and cells are evaluated under the microscope
  • The procedure does not require anesthesia and is psychologically more acceptable than a biopsy
  • This rapid preoperative procedure allows cancer to be confirmed or more often excluded in patients who are worried about a 'lump'
  • Material can be collected for microbiological studies like culture / PCR in suspected cases of tuberculosis
  • FNNAC sampling displays more cellular material, less cellular trauma and more importantly less likelihood of obscuring by blood. Also it has better patient compliance
  • Examination of body fluids, washings, lavages, urine cytology, CSF cytology
  • The above mentioned samples are processed in a specialized centrifuge called Cyto-centrifuge (Cytospin4)
  • Cytospin enables a thin monolayer preparation from any liquid media

Cell block technique

  • Cell block refers to examination of sediment, blood clots or grossly visible flecks of tissue from cytology specimen that are processed by paraffin embedding and staining with H & E
  • Cell blocks are complementary to smears and allow extra slides to be cut for ancillary studies
