Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is a popular and effective technique for quick tissue diagnosis. It is used to investigate superficial lumps or masses that are just under the skin.

This atlas is a practical guide to fine need aspiration cytology for trainees and pathologists. Beginning with an introduction to its clinical use and techniques, the following chapters examine the procedure in all anatomical regions of the body, including lung and pleura, breast, liver, kidney and musculoskeletal system. A complete chapter is dedicated to its use for paediatric tumours.

The book covers both rare and common neoplastic lesions, with key features listed in tabular form for each one.

Written by a recognised expert from the University of Missouri, the atlas is highly illustrated with colour images that present cytological features as well as relevant immunohistochemical and molecular findings.
