Pulmonary Cytology Guidelines – PSC  Companion

Lester Layfield, MD

Professor and Chair, Pathology and  Anatomical Sciences University of Missouri Health System Columbia, Missouri

This webinar describes the recommendations by the Papanicolaou Society of Cytopathology for categorization of respiratory specimens. The categorization scheme includes diagnostic criteria as well as malignancy risk estimates for each category. Six categories are used: non-diagnostic, negative for malignancy, atypical,  neoplastic, suspicious for malignancy, and malignant.  The two indeterminate categories of atypical and suspicious are clinically useful because they stratify malignancy risk.  The neoplastic category is useful for its ability to deal with non-malignant neoplasms and stratify them into benign and low grade. Molecular testing of non-small cell carcinomas will be briefly addressed. These 60-minute webinars begin at 3:00 pm  Eastern Time on the fourth Tuesday of each month (with the exception of December,  which is the second Tuesday).
