This third edition of the popular Cellular Pathology textbook provides a thorough coverage of all the key areas of histological and cytological techniques. It is written for students studying courses in biomedical sciences, healthcare science or other subjects allied to medicine. The book provides essential information on those techniques that have particular relevance to both the diagnosis of disease and also for research in pathology.
This new edition has been thoroughly updated and extended to: * include changes in established practice * accommodate newly emerging techniques such as in molecular diagnostics * provide an introduction to the latest immunological methods, microscopy techniques, image analysis systems and approaches in liquid-based cytology * show all images in full colour. Additionally, the general principles of pathology are given a more rigorous treatment and the approach to good laboratory practice has been expanded.
This edition continues to feature learning objectives, revision notes, recommended further reading and self-evaluation questions provided for each chapter. The book further benefits from an increased number of photographs that illustrate typical results and techniques - all in full colour. Cellular Pathology 3rd edition reflects the current requirements of cellular pathology teaching and practice and provides essential reading on any course that relates to cellular pathology, histology and histopathology.
