aspiration of breast masses in HIV-infected patients: results from a large series.
The materials comprised all fine needle
aspirations performed at the Erbil Teaching Hospital over 24 months (October, 2005 through October, 2006).
Accuracy and clinical role of fine needle
percutaneous biopsy with computerized tomography guidance of small (less than 4.
aspiration cytology (FNAB) is a safe, easy to perform.
Their superficial location makes them an attractive target for diagnostic biopsy or fine needle
Introduced in the 1960s, fine needle
aspiration and cytodiagnosis is now the primary diagnostic modality in cases of bone tumors/lesions at the University Hospital in Lund, Sweden.
In the case presented above, technetium Tc 99m sestamibi scan and the MRI of neck were negative and we utilized parathyroid fine needle
aspiration and parathyroid hormone assay (PTH-FNA) to confirm that the suspected hypoechoic structure located posterior to the right thyroid lobe on the ultrasound examination was actually of parathyroid origin.
aspiration was performed on site by a pathologist.
and Hospital) provide a valuable tool for cytologists learning and honing their skills in fine needle
aspiration of the thyroid.
Utilization of ancillary studies in thyroid fine needle
aspirates: a synopsis of the National Cancer Institute Thyroid Fine Needle
Aspiration State of the Science Conference.
It provides real-time microscopic imaging of pancreatic cysts during endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle
aspiration (EUS-FNA) procedures, making it possible to see the cyst wall down to a cellular level to help physicians find and identify features of each type of cyst that can drive treatment decisions.
CIMM also advocates a process for maintaining and propagating Kuppfer's cells ("KC") reproducibly in defined cell cultures using fine needle
liver aspirates from living human volunteers with potential for patients with failing liver due to a variety of etiologies.
In addition to the CoverTip hypodermic syringe, the Medisys portfolio of patented safety devices includes: BXDraw(TM), a fine needle
biopsy/aspiration safety syringe; SofDraw(TM), a blood and fluid collection safety syringe; and MultiDraw(TM), a needleless multiple vacuum vial blood collection safety device.
In summary, Fine Needle
Aspiration Cytology of Superficial Organs and Body Sites is an excellent reference for residents and fellows in training, as well as for practicing pathologists.
