Molecular diagnostics are increasingly used to help guide targeted therapy in solid organ tumors and hematologic malignancies. A large proportion of molecular testing is performed on limited-volume samples obtained via minimally invasive techniques, such as fine needle aspiration. Increasingly, cytopathologists play an essential role in this process, both in the triage of specimens during rapid on-site evaluation and in the evaluation of archival samples to determine suitability for ancillary testing. Therefore, it is imperative that practicing cytopathologists stay abreast of up-to-date diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive ancillary tests that can be used on limited cytologic material. This is a challenge since the landscape of known genomic alterations is constantly evolving and the subsequent set of testing options is ever expanding. The proposed text will provide a user-friendly quick-reference handbook to serve as a useful resource for practicing pathologists and laboratory personnel dealing with, and interested in, this evolving field of molecular cytopathology. Essential components to be presented include: 1) pre-analytic factors that affect sample selection and evaluation; 2) specimen preparation to maximize confidence in results; 3) interpretation of results; 4) potential limitations; and 5) workflow algorithms. In addition, specific disease specific molecular testing details will be outlined to provide the reader with resources for quick reference. All chapters will be written by experts in their fields and will include the most up-to-date scientific and clinical information. Molecular Diagnostics in Cytopathology will be of value to Cytopathologists, Cytotechnologists, Cytotechnology students, Cytopathology fellows, Surgical pathologists, Pathology residents and fellows, Molecular Pathologists, Molecular pathology fellows, Molecular technologists, as well as Translational researchers with an interest in molecular cytopathology. From the Back Cover The main focus of this book is to provide an overview of the principles of molecular diagnostics in context of cytopathology specimens together with a basic understanding and working knowledge of the available technology, platforms, and clinical applications. The initial sections of the book summarize the pre-analytic aspects of molecular testing, including cytology specimen preparation and handling, specimen selection and evaluation, and workflow algorithms as well as the analytic considerations for a variety of nucleic acid and protein-based testing. The remaining section focuses on disease specific molecular testing for various organ-based applications. Molecular Diagnostics in Cytopathology: A Practical Handbook for the Practicing Pathologist serves as a useful resource for cytopathologists, surgical pathologists, molecular technologists, and all others dealing with the evolving field of molecular cytopathology.
