Diagnostic Cytopathology involves the interpretation of cells that spontaneously exfoliate or are removed from tissues by abrasion or fine needle aspiration, such as specimens from the cervix (Pap tests), breast, thyroid, lymph node, liver, etc. The Division of Cytopathology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital actively participates in all aspects of diagnostic cytopathology as well as cytopathology research and training programs.
