Overall evaluation

In cytology samples, or any sample with scattered cells rather than coherent tissue, also evaluate the following:

  • Adequacy of specimen. Cells may be too few or too obscured by other material to make a proper diagnosis.
  • Background, mainly if it is clear or dirty
  • Overall cellularity
