The laboratory sees approximately 80,000 cases annually, with 59,000 Paps and more than 21,000 non-gynecologic specimens, which include 1,800 adequacy cases.
Our cytopathologist-performed FNA service offers fellows the opportunity to develop proficiency in performing and interpreting FNAs, including rapid assessment of specimen adequacy. Fellows are integrally involved in the rapid on-site evaluation of both endobronchial ultrasound-guided FNAs and endoscopic ultrasound-guided FNAs with progressive responsibility in these areas. A cytology imaging system and diagnostic molecular cytology supplement training in diagnostic cytomorphology.
The faculty are all subspecialized in Cytopathology and are dedicated to sharing the depth and breadth of their experience with residents and fellows. In addition to expertise in gynecologic cytopathology, our group also has expertise in breast, thyroid, gastrointestinal/hepatobiliary, genitourinary, pulmonary and molecular cytopathology.
