The field of cytopathology’s definitive text – completely updated with the latest guidelines, innovations, and references More than 1,500 color pathology images The Third Edition of Clinical Cytopathology: Fundamental Principles and Practice addresses the many exciting new developments in the field, and reflects the expanded role of cytologic methods in the diagnosis of disease, and in guiding the selection of the most appropriate and effective therapy measures. Presented in rich full color, this classic text is enhanced by more than 1,500 color pathology images and numerous algorithms that guide you through the process of determining whether a particular disease state is present. The first five chapters of Clinical Cytopathology address general principles of cytopathology, criteria of malignancy, and the techniques used to procure cytologic samples. These are followed by discussion of cytopathology of head and neck organs in Part II, including CNS, ophthalmic cytopathology, salivary glands, thyroid, and lymph nodes. Parts III to VI consider thoracic and abdominal systems, including respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary and gynecologic organs, concluding with a chapter on breast cytopathology. Musculoskeletal, skin and pediatric cytopathology follow in Parts VII and VIII. The last six chapters address the latest specialized ancillary and automated techniques, as well as management and quality assurance, issues that are critical for optimal performance and safety within the laboratory. All chapters have been completely rewritten or updated to incorporate the latest innovations, guidelines, and references. Eight new chapters discuss areas where our knowledge has expanded significantly, such as pediatric cytopathology, molecular techniques, immunocytochemistry and HPV testing. The cytomorphologic characteristics are illustrated by an abundance of full-color figures, Differential diagnostic issues are emphasized for various disease entities, enhanced by the use of tables to contrast features where appropriate. Bulleted key points are included throughout the text to highlight salient aspects of the major entities, and the references‘ list in each chapter is edited to include latest critical ones, while maintaining the succinct nature of the text.

Volume 3, Cancer, presents the complex patterns of cancer incidence and death around the world and evidence on effective and cost-effective ways to control cancers. The DCP3 evaluation of cancer will indicate where cancer treatment is ineffective and wasteful, and offer alternative cancer care packages that are cost-effective and suited to low-resource settings. Main messages from the volume include: -Quality matters in all aspects of cancer treatment and palliation. -Cancer registries that track incidence, mortality, and survival †“ paired with systems to capture causes of death are important to understanding the national cancer burden and the effect of interventions over time. -Effective interventions exist at a range of prices. Adopting "resource appropriate" measures which allow the most effective treatment for the greatest number of people will be advantageous to countries. -Prioritizing resources toward early stage and curable cancers is likely to have the greatest health impact in low income settings. -Research prioritization is no longer just a global responsibility. Providing cancer treatment requires adequate numbers of trained healthcare professionals and infrastructure beyond what is available in most LMICs, especially low income countries. Careful patient monitoring is a requirement of good quality cancer care and this often involves laboratory tests in addition to clinical examination. Even if financing were immediately available to build or expand a cancer control system, reaching capacity will take many years.

As the culminating volume in the DCP3 series, volume 9 will provide an overview of DCP3 findings and methods, a summary of messages and substantive lessons to be taken from DCP3, and a further discussion of cross-cutting and synthesizing topics across the first eight volumes. The introductory chapters (1-3) in this volume take as their starting point the elements of the Essential Packages presented in the overview chapters of each volume. First, the chapter on intersectoral policy priorities for health includes fiscal and intersectoral policies and assembles a subset of the population policies and applies strict criteria for a low-income setting in order to propose a "highest-priority" essential package. Second, the chapter on packages of care and delivery platforms for universal health coverage (UHC) includes health sector interventions, primarily clinical and public health services, and uses the same approach to propose a highest priority package of interventions and policies that meet similar criteria, provides cost estimates, and describes a pathway to UHC.
