This book covers the following topics: Role of Diagnostic Cytology, Collection and Preparation of Material
for Cytodiagnosis, Cytopreparatory techniques of Serous Effusions, Fixation of
Cytology specimens, Staining methods in Cytology.
This book is concerned with a discussion of the basic
facts, concepts, and problems of cellular biology. The authors have provided a
general picture of the field, the details of which may be filled in by reference
to the many fine sources available. Topics covered includes: Cells and Cellular
Organization, Proteins, Nucleic Acids, Lipids, Carbohydrates, Inorganic
Constituents, Structure and Function of Cytoplasmic, Endoplasmic Reticidum,
Microsomes, Cytoplasmic Matrix, Cell Membrane, Vacuoles, Structure and Function
of the Nucleus, Nuclear Envelope, Chromomeres, Mechanics and Physiology of Cell
Division, The Chromosome Coiling Cycle, Cytogenetics, Radiation Cytology, Survey
of Cytological Techniques.
This note provides an
introduction to the structure of eukaryotic genomes, from the level of the
chromosome down to the level of the gene. Basic cytological techniques including
the use of the optical microscope will be covered and supported by laboratory
exercises. Also includes the application of cytogenetic and molecular techniques
in the study of cell division, karyotyping, chromosomal structure,
recombination, changes in chromosome number and structure, physical mapping and
This note covers the following topics: What is a cancerous cell, A
spot, Input and Output of the segmentation, Heterogeneous shapes, Segmentation,
Threshold using the histogram, Extraction of the heaps, Extraction of the nucleiís boundaries, Beucherís Gradient and Over-segmentation.
This manual is intended to be used as a specimen collection
guideline for cytology. Each separate area of concern is included in a different
procedure. Therefore, items such as "transportation", "patient preparation", and
"preservation required" may differ from procedure to procedure.
