    ..In this chapter, current biopsy modalities and imaging techniques, tissue handling and recent updates in the interpretation of prostate biopsy will be discussed. ..

    ..We conclude that, in view of the apparent self-limited nature of this lesion, additional treatment may not be required in these patients. Awareness of this lesion may thus spare patients unwarranted further intervention. ..

    ..To our knowledge, trisomy 17 by FISH has not been previously reported in these extremely rare tumors. ..

    ..However, FS cannot be used to predict the overall final margin status. Recognition of the histological artifacts inherent to the FS procedure is important to ensure appropriate utilization. ..

    ..Fine needle aspiration plus core needle biopsy vs at least fine needle aspiration alone may improve diagnostic yield when sampling renal masses but it has subtyping potential similar to that of core needle biopsy only. ..

    ..We conclude that SATB2 immunohistochemistry is not useful in supporting urothelial versus gastrointestinal or endocervical origin in the differential diagnosis of glandular lesions of the bladder/urinary tract. ..
