This section of the site is dedicated to cytology. Note, we have strived to provide images from smears stained with rapid stains (e.g. Diff-quik®) because this is what you are used to seeing in practice versus the Wright's stain we use (and love) in the Clinical Pathology Laboratory.
Overview: Real short information on why we do cytology (other than instant gratification!).
Sample collection: Tips on getting the most of your cytologic results (garbage in = garbage out - well not really, we try and do our best even with smears that are not the best quality).
