My clinical service is in cytopathology, particularly, fine needle aspiration, and the cytology of lesions of soft tissue, breast, pancreas.
One of my ongoing research projects is a retrospective analysis of archival fine needle aspirate (FNA) biopsy smears, cell blocks, and corresponding surgical tissue (when available), performed over the last 10 years, to determine the false positive and false negative rates and hence the accuracy, specificity, and sensitivity of soft tissue FNA biopsy.
