BACKGROUND Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology is increasingly being used as a diagnostic modality for soft tissue and bone lesions. These diagnoses can be challenging because of a variety of factors, including interpretation and sampling issues. This study investigates the diagnostic utility of FNA biopsy, in addition to the diagnostic pitfalls, in soft tissue and bone cytopathology. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the soft tissue and bone FNAs over a 4-year period (2004-2008), along… CONTINUE READING
