    1. Digital pathology: Get on board—the train is leaving the station (pages 791–795)

      David C. Wilbur

      Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21479

      The digital revolution clearly is underway, and the new technologies will affect the practice of pathology in general. In the coming years, cytology will be particularly affected by these technologic advances.

    1. The value of the “suspicious for urothelial carcinoma” cytology category: A correlative study of 4 years including 337 patients (pages 796–803)

      Tuyet Nhung Ton Nu, Wassim Kassouf, Babak Ahmadi-Kaliji, Michele Charbonneau, Manon Auger and Fadi Brimo

      Article first published online: 6 JUN 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21449

      A diagnosis of “suspicious for urothelial carcinoma” is likely similar to the recently suggested “atypical urothelial cells, cannot rule out high-grade carcinoma” category. It also carries a significant risk of harboring high-grade urothelial carcinoma.

      The role of cytopathology and cyst fluid analysis in the preoperative diagnosis and management of pancreatic cysts >3 cm (pages 804–809)

      Ivan Chebib, Kurt Yaeger, Mari Mino-Kenudson and Martha B. Pitman

      Article first published online: 17 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21460

      Fine-needle aspiration of pancreatic cysts >3 cm adds value to imaging studies, especially when compared with computed tomography. Cytology is more specific for the detection of malignancy than imaging for cysts >3 cm.

    3. Cytology specimens offer an effective alternative to formalin-fixed tissue as demonstrated by novel automated detection for ALK break-apart FISH testing and immunohistochemistry in lung adenocarcinoma (pages 810–821)

      Frida Rosenblum, Lloyd M. Hutchinson, Joann Garver, Bruce Woda, Ediz Cosar and Elizabeth M. Kurian

      Article first published online: 5 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21467

      The results of the current study demonstrate that cytologic material (using ThinPrep/UroCyte, formalin-fixed, or alcohol-fixed paraffin-embedded cell blocks) is equivalent to paraffin-embedded tissue for anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) testing. The authors conclude that alcohol-fixed and formalin-fixed cytology are suitable for ALK FISH and immunohistochemical testing.

    4. Lung cancer adrenal gland metastasis: Optimal fine-needle aspirate and touch preparation smear cellularity characteristics for successful theranostic next-generation sequencing (pages 822–832)

      Ferga C. Gleeson, Benjamin R. Kipp, Michael J. Levy, Jesse S. Voss, Michael B. Campion, Douglas M. Minot, Zheng J. Tu, Eric W. Klee, Konstantinos N. Lazaridis and Sarah E. Kerr

      Article first published online: 15 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21464

      Cellular cytologic smears from adrenal gland metastases are suitable for next-generation sequencing in patients with advanced lung cancer. In the current study, the characteristics of acceptable smears are outlined for use in onsite adequacy evaluation.

    5. A panel of protein markers for the early detection of lung cancer with bronchial brushing specimens (pages 833–841)

      Yi-Zhen Liu, Yan-Yi Jiang, Bo-Shi Wang, Jia-Jie Hao, Li Shang, Tong-Tong Zhang, Jian Cao, Xin Xu, Qi-Min Zhan and Ming-Rong Wang

      Article first published online: 9 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21461

      The 6-protein panel (TP53, Ki67, MCM6, MCM7, KIAA1522, and KIAA0317) is a potential biomarker for the early detection of lung cancer in bronchial brushings. The combinaion of cytology and the protein panel significantly improved the sensitivity of bronchial brushing examination for lung cancer detection

    6. The low risk of precancer after a screening result of human papillomavirus-negative/atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance papanicolaou and implications for clinical management (pages 842–850)

      Julia C. Gage, Hormuzd A. Katki, Mark Schiffman, Philip E. Castle, Barbara Fetterman, Nancy E. Poitras, Thomas Lorey, Li C. Cheung, Catherine Behrens, Abha Sharma, Fang-Hui Zhao, Jack Cuzick, Zi Hua Yang and Walter K. Kinney

      Article first published online: 9 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21463

    7. Impact of touch preparations on core needle biopsies (pages 851–854)

      Leung Chu B. Tong, Dorota Rudomina, Natasha Rekhtman and Oscar Lin

      Article first published online: 19 JUN 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/cncy.21447

      Touch preparations used for rapid on-site assessment have the potential to impact the findings in core biopsies.
