Interpretation of Canine and Feline Cytology
Interpretation of Canine and Feline Cytology is divided into four parts: Part I covers basic information on sample collection, specimen preparation, and microscopic evaluation. Part II discusses interpretation of the microscopic evaluation to reach a cytologic diagnosis of inflammation, hyperplasia, or neoplasia and includes a chapter devoted to identification of organisms. Part III contains case studies organized by systems. Reference material is located in Part IV. This handbook provides an introduction to cytology, presents some of the more common abnormalities in which cytology is useful for establishing a diagnosis, and points out certain situations in which the cytologic interpretation results in a provisional diagnosis that should be confirmed by histologic evaluation.
