Histopathology and cytopathology of the Uterine Cervix – Digital Atlas
Histopathologie et Cytopathologie du Col Utérin – Atlas Numérique

Edited by L. Frappart, B. Fontanière, E. Lucas et R. Sankaranarayanan
Autumn 2004
CD-ROM
ISBN 92 832 2424 8
US$ 15

This Digital Uterine Cervix Histopathology and Cytopathology Atlas of Basic Reference is intended for practising pathologists, cytotechnologists and technicians. It is also suitable for resident pathologists training in medical schools and for cytology technicians, particularly in developing countries.
The interactive CD-ROM contains over 1200 images obtained from various on-going and completed IARC cervical cancer screening and prevention projects in different countries, which have been extensively reviewed by project staff, as well as by quality control pathologists.
This product will contribute to improving the diagnostic standards of pre-invasive cervical lesions in low-resource settings and will be an important training tool.
Chinese version available (ISBN: 92-832-2428-0)
