The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, named the 2014 Lab of the Year by the prominent magazine Medical Laboratory Observer for its commitment to quality patient care, includes the state-of-the-art Cytopathology Laboratory equipped with the latest technology. The Cytopathology Laboratory processes approximately 20,000 gynecologic specimens, 7000 non-gynecologic specimens, and 3000 fine needle aspiration biopsies (FNAB) yearly, including a significant practice of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided procedures that produce both fine needle aspiration specimens and core biopsies with touch preparations. A cytology case study set, which includes hundreds of exfoliative cytology and FNA specimens from numerous organ systems, is available for fellow education. The program offers a rich variety of clinical material and research opportunities for developing both an academic and clinical career. In addition, to further advance the academic, teaching, and research missions of the organization, Anatomic Pathology provides support to the Cedars-Sinai BioBank and Translational Pathology divisions.
