Featuring over 250 full-color images, this text is a detailed and thoroughly illustrated guide to interpretation of transbronchial and endobronchial biopsies. The book presents a consistent, well-organized approach to each biopsy diagnosis: differential diagnosis includes low-power figure overview, high-power figure from the same diagnosis, followed by artifacts, pitfalls, and special clues to the correct diagnosis.

A companion Website will offer the fully searchable text and an image bank.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Katie L Dennis, MD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is a thorough yet concise overview of transbronchial and endobronchial biopsy diagnosis, which includes diagnostic approaches for both neoplastic and non-neoplastic lung diseases and is specifically focused on limitations, artifacts, and techniques unique to this type of specimen.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide diagnostic guidance in daily practice, specifically the unique approach to transbronchial and endobronchial biopsies.
Audience: The book is a practical size for everyday use and would be ideal for both trainees and practicing pathologists.
Features: An overview of the technique and underlying reasons for transbronchial and endobronchial biopsy begins the book. Then, it is divided into chapters based on specific entities, encompassing the spectrum of pulmonary pathology, from interstitial lung disease, transplant pathology, and infections to neoplastic disease. The excellent images are unique because they are from biopsy specimens at both low and high power, making the book even more user-friendly and relevant for daily practice. An accompanying online text and image bank are fully searchable and downloadable.
Assessment: This is an extremely useful reference to have handy for daily sign-out because it is concise, practical, and specific for biopsy specimens, something that is not always well covered in standard pulmonary pathology textbooks. The accompanying high quality images are from actual biopsy specimens, which makes them very helpful for everyday use. The result is a thorough and up-to-date examination of the subject condensed into an easy to use diagnostic guide.
