Imprint Cytopathology of Core Needle Biopsies: A “First Responder” Role for Cytotechnologists

The eJournal is an online pathology journal club that reviews current articles from a peer-reviewed cytopathology Journal.

Participants will be able to review the journal article, commentary and webinar from the contributing author. This is a great self-assessment, teaching and continuing education tool.

Target Audience

This educational activity is designed for pathologists, cytopathologists, cytotechnologists, students and other members of the cytopathology community.

Learning Objectives

  • To discuss of the role of imprint cytology (IC) in the assessment of sampling adequacy during the cytotechnologist (CyT) performed on-site adequacy assessment (OSAA ) procedures
  • To evaluate the accuracy and interchangeability between (CyTs) and cytopathologists (CPs) by using IC as a tool in the OSAA procedures
  • To reflect on how the IC technique could be used as an alternative cost-effective way for the on-site evaluation of sampling adequacy during image-guided FNA procedures
