OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to evaluate the typing accuracy of conventional smear (CS), cell block (CB) preparations and combined use of both procedures (CS + CB) for the diagnosis of hepatic malignancies and to determine whether immediate on-site cytopathological evaluation improves the diagnostic yield of liver fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). METHODS Ultrasound-guided FNABs were performed on 323 consecutive cases with liver masses between December 2002 and December 2004… CONTINUE READING
