Cairo Diagnostics’ Cytopathology Division is focused on non-gynecologic cytology services. Our expert staff examines and interprets specimens to detect a broad range of diseases at the cellular level, providing fast, accurate results from which to determine a course of treatment. Special studies, including immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry and molecular studies are also available.
Cytopathology, used to aid in the diagnosis of cancer, infectious diseases, and inflammatory conditions, is minimally invasive with a low risk of complications to the patient. The types of specimens reviewed by the Cytopathology Division include:
- Thyroid Cytology
- Breast Cytology
- Head and Neck Cytology
- Urine Cytology
- Fine Needle Aspirations
In addition to slide consultations, patients may schedule appointments at our Cytodiagnostic Center to receive ultrasound guided Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) biopsies from our board certified cytopathologist, who provides immediate interpretation of biopsy specimens.
