Abstract

Imprint and scrape cytology are variations of a form of applied cytology that is only rarely used here in Germany. While as a techniques they are fundamentally different from exfoliative and aspiration cytology (i.e., fine needle biopsy), in some ways they are also related to these two methods. They are employed for diagnostic purposes in scientific research and in the training and continuing training of cytologists and urologists interested in cytology (Al-Abadi and Nagel 1988 a, b; Müller and Böhm 1974; Shidham et al. 1984; Skopa et al. 1990).
