Book Description

This volume provides a practical yet comprehensive guide to manage the shift in the diagnosis of lung cancer from large resections to small samples including cytology specimens and core biopsies. Specifically it outlines various available minimally-invasive modalities and presents algorithms to optimize and maximize sample collection and processing beginning at the time of tissue acquisition during the procedure. Secondly the book provides an overview of the various existing and emerging lung cancer therapies and why a specific diagnosis is crucial. Key elements for the classification of small biopsies and cytology proposed by the ATS IASLC and ERS are highlighted. A section dedicated to immunohistochemistry offers a logical step-by-step guide to sub-classify lung cancers and to differentiate them from metastases. The text also provides a review of the various molecular tests (and alternatives in cases of scant tissue) required for lung adenocarcinomas. Finally potential pitfalls to avoid during acquisition processing and classification are discussed.

With contributions from a team of multidisciplinary authors who are regularly involved in the care of lung cancer patients Diagnosing Non-small Cell Carcinoma in Small Biopsy and Cytology is an invaluable reference guide for pathologists pathologists-in-training and allied professionals including oncologists pulmonologists surgeons and radiologists. ​
