About this book


Fifteen years have elapsed since the publication of the original book under the same title.  With the passage of time little has changed and the same conceptual mistakes continue to be made in the practice of urinary cytopathology as in the past.  For this reason a much simplified new edition of this book with the application of new processing techniques has been thought to be a worthwhile undertaking .  Numerous new color photographs from the file of the co-editor have replaced old black and white photographs and will hopefully support the brief text for the benefit of patients. This volume will appeal to urologists as well as pathologists, cytopathologists and related professions.

From the reviews:

“This is a comprehensive book on urinary tract cytology and clinical correlations. … Written for cytologists and urologists, this book will be most appropriate for those in current practice, as well as those training in these fields. As for cytologists, both licensed cytologists and cytopathologists would find it useful. Lastly, clinical laboratory scientists or pathologists involved in urinalysis might find it helpful. … This is a pretty cool book that you should have if you examine cytological preparations derived from urinary tract specimens.” (Valerie Ng, Doody’s Review Service, April/May, 2012)

“Cythopathology is helpful for screening, diagnosis and follow-up of patients with lower and upper urinary tract tumours. … Cytologic aspects of such tumours were described, including urothelial, non urothelial, and metastatic. … This textbook is wonderfully illustrated with color photographs, and represents an outstanding … information, for cytologists, urologists, and oncologists.” (European Urology Today, Issue 5, October/November, 2012)

“This book represents the concept of urine cytology in a compact, colourful crucible of high quality photomicrographs. It gives an excellent overview on the specific field of urine cytology. … this book offers a practical approach to sampling techniques and cytological interpretation of urothelial malignancies. I would recommend this book to all laboratories where urine cytology forms an important component of the cytology practice.” (Samita Agarwal, Urology News, March/April, 2013)
