Maximizing the diagnostic value of cytology in small animal practice.
Vet Clin North Am Small Anim Pract. 2007 Mar; 37(2):351-72, vii.VC

Abstract

Cytology is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. A review of the literature indicates its utility in evaluation of specific lesions. The information obtained from cytology is greatly enhanced by a good understanding of its advantages and disadvantages and an open and interactive relationship between clinicians and pathologists. Critical selection of appropriate lesions, good sampling technique, quality sample handling, and provision of a complete clinical history and lesion description enhance the utility of the information returned to the clinician by the pathologist. A good cytologic diagnosis is a team effort.
