Accomplishments and short-comings of cancer cytology In Cancer cytology and cytochemistry I General problems in cancer cytology



Ann New York Acad Sci: 1070-1078



Accomplishments and shortcomings of cancer cytology were reviewed from the clinical point of view. Evidence establishing the success of cytologic screening for cancer of the uterus, particularly early cancer of the cervix, was given. Applications of cytology to cancer diagnosis were reviewed, and the factors determining success and failure, both in diagnosis and screening, were outlined. The major shortcoming in cytology today is the acute shortage of laboratory facilities. The importance of this problem and some approaches to its solution were discussed. Finally, the unique opportunities that cytology affords for clinical research in the nature and control of cancer were touched upon.
