Cytopathology Editor's Choice
The extended role of cytotechnologists is the theme of the October issue and a review by E.G. Barr Fritcher and her co-authors from the Mayo Clinic is selected as Editor’s choice. This review demonstrates not only the value of FISH in improving the accuracy of endoscopic pancreatobiliary brushings but also the role of cytotechnologists in carrying out the procedure. A survey of cytotechnologists’ training (Anic and Eide), a Discussion Forum focused on Europe (Herbert et al.) and an editorial by H. G. Wiener all consider the implications for training of the increasing demand for cytotechnologists in non-gynaecological cytology at a time when their role in cytological cervical screening may be decreasing. Two articles (Breeze et al. and Shield et al.) demonstrate the role of cytotechnologists in rapid on-site evaluation of FNAs.
Please note that the full series of five articles on this theme in the October issue will be free access for the remaining months of 2014.
