OBJECTIVE: To evaluate double immunocytochemical staining with p53 and CK20, as a tool for improving the accuracy of urinary cytology. The aim of the present study was to clarify the diagnostic significance of the expression of these markers and to investigate the possibility of using this information for better monitoring of bladder cancer patients during follow-up. MATERIAL AND METHODS: One hundred and twenty-five urine cytology cases were retrieved with corresponding histology from our files...

OBJECTIVE: Endometrial cytology has been widely used as a screening tool in Japan. Traditionally, a three-tier reporting system, consisting of 'negative', 'suspicious' and 'positive' categories, has been used. However, a more descriptive system, the New Terminology in Endometrial Cytology (NTEMC), which is based on the Bethesda System for uterine cervical cytology, was introduced recently. The objective of this study was to validate the NTEMC criteria. METHODS: Endometrial cytology specimens that had been categorised as 'suspicious' were collected in our hospital between 2003 and 2013, and from these, 106 specimens with corresponding histological results, were re-evaluated according to the NTEMC criteria...

OBJECTIVE: Solid variants of papillary thyroid carcinoma (SV-PTC) are rare, and there have been few reports describing the cytological findings of such variants. METHODS: The cytological features of cellular specimens aspirated from 18 histologically confirmed SV-PTC cases were evaluated, retrospectively. RESULTS: Solid and small papillary clusters were observed in 14 (77.8%) and 13 (72.2%) cases, respectively. The incidences of large papillary clusters (11...

OBJECTIVE: To assess both the feasibility and value of conducting an external quality assurance programme concerning technical aspects of cytopathology laboratory practice, and the interest by laboratories in enrolling in such a programme. METHODS: Six technical surveys, comprising staining exercises and questionnaires relating to laboratory practice, were distributed over a 4-year period to the approximately 220 laboratories enrolled in the RCPAQAP Cytopathology slide survey modules...

BACKGROUND: A fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is the most valuable diagnostic procedure for pre-operative discrimination of benign and malignant nodules. The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology provides standardised reporting and cytomorphological criteria in aspiration smears. The aim of the present study was to determine malignancy rates in nodules with different cytology results and evaluate the diagnostic value of Bethesda for variants of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC)...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and the learning curve of the endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (EUS-FNAB) diagnostics of pancreatic lesions over 8 years (2007-2014). MATERIAL AND METHODS: EUS-FNAB using a Linear Echoendoscope Olympus was performed in 531 patients, mostly without rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE). Smears plus cytoblock sections were used routinely. Immunocytochemistry was utilised as indicated. RESULTS: The average, satisfactory sampling rate increased from the 61...

OBJECTIVE: The presence of atypical cells in urine cytology is unsatisfactory for both cytologists and clinicians. The objective of this study was to test whether p53 and Ki-67 immunostaining could improve urothelial carcinoma (UC) detection on urinary cytology. METHODS: A total of 196 urine samples were analysed, 142 from the bladder, 41 from the upper tract and 13 from ileal bladder replacement. Cytology results were expressed as normal (N) (n = 81), atypia cannot exclude low-grade UC (ALG) (n = 25), suspicious for high-grade UC (SHG) (n = 39) and high-grade UC (HG) (n = 51)...

National cervical screening programmes are considering a move to HPV primary screening. HPV testing requires the cervical sample to be placed in liquid based cytology (LBC) media and the triage cytology test will be carried out using LBC preparations. The resources required for conversion training from conventional smears to LBC should not be underestimated as errors can be made without the use of a structured training plan and monitoring of performance. In the UK, many labs have converted between the two main LBC technologies, Thinprep and Surepath...

Training in both cervical and non-gynaecological cytology in the UK has never faced a more challenging environment. A national reconfiguration of cervical cytology services has focussed resources on large centres and damaged the traditional links and overlapping roles within non-gynaecological cytology. The UK is now at significant risk of falling behind most European countries in the use of non-gynaecological cytology. The UK currently has five training centres which are approved by the NHS Screening programme for training in cervical cytology; the planned introduction of HPV primary screening and the subsequent dramatic reduction in cervical cytology workload will increase pressure on the remaining training schools...

M Tötsch
Education and training in cytology in Europe is hampered by the fact that there is no homogenous programme across Europe. This can be observed for (Cyto)Pathologists and Cytotechnologists. However, lack of workforce and lack of a pan-European Cytology diploma are decreasing motivation among junior staff to dedicate their professional interests to cytology. Cytology and histology are complementary approaches for the diagnosis or exclusion of disease in patients and there are many individual efforts of National Societies to maintain competencies in cytology by workshops, seminars, tutorials and congresses...

Currently there is a major challenge to train sufficient cytopathologists and cytotechnicians in developing countries that have poor medical and pathology infrastructure. Cytology requires well trained pathologists and laboratory staff but it needs only minimal laboratory resources. Cytology can provide the material for rapid, accurate and inexpensive diagnoses of infections such as tuberculosis and of benign and malignant palpable and impalpable lesions. Cytology can achieve this in the developing world by utilizing fine needle aspiration biopsy cytology, general fluids cytology and cervical cytology, in the same manner as is currently done in the developed world where cytology specimens are used to make cytomorphological diagnoses and increasingly to provide material for the full range of ancillary testing including molecular pathology...

'Morph' means to change gradually and completely from one thing into another usually in a way that is surprising or seems magical. How can cytotechnology education be morphed into an expanded curriculum to teach new skills for advanced practice? The challenges cytotechnology programmes are facing today are many. The biggest of these challenges is the decreasing volume of Pap tests. Pap tests have been our 'bread and butter' throughout history; however, advances in health care and technology are inevitable, thus requiring changes in our educational practices...
