Cytology

We provide diagnostic cytology using cells from tissue fluids such as urine and sputum. We also use scrapings, washings and brushings from various parts of the body such as the skin and cervix.

We have a consultant-led fine needle aspiration service for palpable lumps. Our consultants also assist with CT, ultrasound and endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration cytology.

We provide diagnostic services for the national NHS Cervical Screening Programme using liquid-based cytology.

Our specialist services include:

  • fine needle aspirations
  • Non-gynaecological cytology
  • DDISH interpretation.
