Beyond the microscope
from Advance for Medical Laboratory Professionals
Microscopy defines the world of cytology. This has traditionally been the primary association when it comes to our profession, and it still is to a great extent. The most common application of cytopathology is the Pap smear, used as a screening tool to detect precancerous and cancerous gynecologic lesions. This approach still relies on the basic tool of the profession, and a meaningful diagnosis can now be supported by a variety of approaches.
