Histologic subtyping of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) is important because the efficacy of new treatments depends on tumor histologic features. We assessed the diagnostic accuracy of classification of lung adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) on cytologic and biopsy specimens based on cytomorphologic studies alone or in combination with ancillary studies compared with resection specimens. Compared with adenocarcinoma, the diagnosis of SCC was based more often on… CONTINUE READING
