We conclude that immunocytochemical staining of cytospin preparation is a sensitive and simple method to detect and quantitate breast cancer cells in LP.
All specimens were processed as Cytospin preparations, and stained Mean interval between initial diagnosis of breast carcinoma and "positive" as the aforementioned findings were present in both types of preparation.
Using the Thinprep method, we found that each type of tumor cells in the breast, and stomach, and lung squamous cell carcinomas, small cell lung of the Thinprep method was significantly higher than that of the Cytospin.
Key Words: Fine-needle aspiration; Breast; Cytology; ThinPrep. Abstract. Fine-needle time the breast cancer population has changed, with a higher prevalence of processed using a Nucleopore filter or Cytospin technique. For ThinPrep.
