THE PARIS SYSTEM FOR REPORTING URINARY CYTOPATHOLOGY

The American Society of Cytopathology (ASC) and the International Academy of Cytology (IAC) have initiated the development of a standardized terminology for reporting urinary tract cytology specimens.  The need for standardization of urine cytology has been voiced through the ASC membership listserv on numerous occasions. The initial idea for pursuing developing terminology for urinary cytology came from ASC members, led by Drs. Dorothy Rosenthal and Eva Wojcik. This topic was further developed by members of the ASC and IAC at the International Congress of Cytology meeting held in Paris in May 2013. We invite your participation in this international collaborative process by evaluating draft statements for each topic.
