"Clinical and radiologic examinations cannot reliably distinguish benign or inflammatory pancreatic disease from carcinoma. The increased use of pancreatic fine needle aspiration (FNA) along with advances in imaging techniques and the introduction of endoscopic ultrasound guidance have led to significantly better detection and recognition of pancreatic masses. Consequently, pancreatic cytopathology is integral to accurate pre-operative diagnosis yet it is a challenging diagnostic area with a variety of potential pitfalls and "look-alike" lesions. Skillful recognition and an awareness of the limitations of the procedure are essential in avoiding misdiagnosis of these dangerous lesions.

Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations fills a void in current pathology literature. With 450 high-resolution images, including images of histopathologic and radiologic features, this practical atlas presents an integrated approach to diagnostic cytopathology that will help physician cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, and pathologists avoid potential pitfalls and "look-alike" lesions. Written by recognized experts in the field, the extensive high-resolution color images of the characteristic features of pancreatic disease are presented with detailed descriptions that cover classic features, diagnostic clues, and potential pitfalls.

Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations is a valuable resource for the seasoned cytopathologist, general and surgical pathologists, pathology trainees, and cytotechnologists.

Editorial Review(s) 

"The Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations is appropriate for cytotechnologists, pathology residents and fellows, surgical pathologists, and seasoned cytopathologists. Drs. Ali, Erozan, Hruban are experts in pancreatic pathology and share their tremendous experience and expertise gained from the wealth of material at Johns Hopkins Medical Center...A true pathology atlas, this book contains numerous (450) color photomicrographs encompassing gross images, radiology, and cytopathologic and histopathologic images, all accompanied by complete captions. The Atlas of Pancreatic Cytopathology with Histopathologic Correlations is a beautifully illustrated and well written practical atlas of pancreatic cytopathology. Novice and experienced cytopathologists alike will appreciate the high quality images and excellent accompanying legends. "- Doody's Reviews

"This well-organized, photomicrograph based atlas is an excellent reference for surgical pathologists and cytopathologists as well as gastroenterologists who take an interest in the morphology of their patients' lesions." - Gastroenterology, 2010
