This bladder biopsy interpretation book was prepared with the practicing pathologist as the foremost consideration. It reflects the most cutting-edge, contemporary practice of urologic pathology. The vast collection of full-color, highest-quality photomicrographs and tables will materially aid the user in continuing efforts to recognize, understand, and accurately interpret the light microscopic findings in bladder specimens. The nomenclature and diagnostic criteria for these new and consistent standards were developed by an international team of more than 35 pathologists, including all three of the authors of this book, representing the World Health Organization and International Society of Urologic Pathologists. The standards provide, for the first time, a framework on which diagnostic features can be compared, evaluated, and integrated.
