OBJECTIVES The Bethesda 2001 Workshop was convened to evaluate and update the 1991 Bethesda System terminology for reporting the results of cervical cytology. A primary objective was to develop a new approach to broaden participation in the consensus process. PARTICIPANTS Forum groups composed of 6 to 10 individuals were responsible for developing(More)
BACKGROUND The International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) has received significant attention since the late 1990s. As it currently stands, its long version has been translated in English, German, Icelandic, Korean, Polish, Spanish, Turkish, and Vietnamese. However no data originating from the self-administered long version (last 7 days) of the(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES The role of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for primary lung cancer remains poorly defined. The purpose of this "ablate and resect" pilot study was to evaluate the safety of performing RFA in patients with primary non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and to characterize the histologic changes in tumor tissue following such ablation. DESIGN(More)
BACKGROUND Diagnosing liver tumors by fine-needle aspiration biopsy is safe and accurate. However, there are cases that prove diagnostically difficult. Traditionally, immunostains for alpha-fetoprotein and polyclonal carcinoembryonic antigen have been used to distinguish adenocarcinomas from hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs). In poorly differentiated tumors,(More)
CONTEXT The College of American Pathologists Interlaboratory Comparison Program in Non-Gynecologic Cytopathology is a popular educational program for nongynecologic cytology, with 1018 participating laboratories by the end of 2000. Data generated from this program allow tracking pathologist performance in a wide variety of laboratory practices. OBJECTIVE(More)

Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNA) is a useful tool for evaluating and staging follicular lymphoma (FL) without subjecting patients to multiple excisional biopsies. The relative lack of architecture in FNA is a limitation in grading FL. Recognizing the various cellular components in aspirates of FL, correlating with flow cytometry, using other ancillary(More)
Two cases of endocarditis caused by Cardiobacterium hominis are reported. In both instances infection was subacute and characterized by (i) implantation on abnormal valves, (ii) chronic course lasting weeks to months before recognition, and (iii) rapid clinical and bacteriological response to penicillin, as well as other antibiotics commonly used to treat(More)
CONTEXT Results of clinical trials suggest that interpretation of liquid-based cytology preparations is more accurate and is associated with less screening error than interpretation of conventional preparations. OBJECTIVE In this study, the performance of participants in interpreting ThinPrep (TP) preparations was compared with participants' performance(More)
BACKGROUND Diagnosing liver tumors can be difficult in the setting of a poorly differentiated tumor or tumors with no known prior malignancy. Frequently, alpha-fetoprotein, carcinoembryonic antigen, factor VIII, and mucicarmine have been employed to distinguish hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) from adenocarcinoma. However, these stains have their limitations.(More)
