Role of Touch Imprint Cytology of Needle Core Biopsies in Adequacy Assessment: Change in Practice Pattern

July 26, 2016

Vijayalakshmi Padmanabhan, MD
Associate Professor of Pathology, Medical Director of Cytopathology
Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center
Lebanon, New Hampshire

Needle core biopsies (NCB) are replacing classic FNA in many institutions across the US, and intra-procedural cytological assessment of the Touch Imprint (TI) cytology of NCB is often requested by radiologists. In this webinar, we will discuss the role of TI cytology of skinny NCB in adequacy assessment – preparing the specimen, differentiating the morphological features from classic FNA and the advantages and pitfalls of this technique.
