Описание: Cytopathology, a branch of pathology that studies and diagnoses diseases at the cellular level, was founded by Rudolf Virchow in 1858. The first cytopathology test, the Pap (anicolaou) test for screening and diagnosis of cervical cancer, was developed over 50 years ago and has proven to be not only the most successful screening test in medical history, but also the most effective global cancer reduction program. Since the development of the Pap test, the practice of cytopathology has expanded greatly to include samples from nearly all body sites which can be acquired during a range of procedures such as centesis, endoscopy, and fine needle aspiration. Cytologic sampling is minimally invasive, time efficient, and provides accurate, actionable information in the hands of qualified cytopathologists.
