Abstract

Fine Needle Cytology (FNC) Has Gained Tremendous Popularity in Recent Times Among The Clinicians And The Pathologists. It Is Easy To Perform, Quick And Has A High Degree Of Specificity And Sensitivity. FNAC And FNNAC Are The Two Techniques Of Fine Needle Cytology (FNC). FNC Is Used To Sample All Superficial Mass Lesions And Even Deeply Seated Lesions. Deeply Seated Lesions Can Be Sampled With The Aid Of Imaging Techniques. The Basic Principle Underlying Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology Is The Aspiration Of Cellular Material From The Target Masses Often Utilizing Fairly High Suction Pressure. The Procedure Requires A Needle And A Syringe Advisedly Held In A Syringe Holder Enabling Single Handed Suction To Be Exercised. This Technique Depends On The Suction And Is Painful, Traumatic And Can Cause Hematomas As Well As Yield Hemorrhagic Material. In More Recent Times A Modified Technique Called Fine Needle Non-Aspiration Cytology (FNNAC) , Pioneered In France Came Into Vogue In 1981. It Eliminates Active Aspiration By Syringe, Replacing It By The Principle Of Capillary Suction Of Fluid Or Semi Fluid Material Into A Thin Channel (Fine Needle). It Is Less Painful, Less Traumatic, And Patient-Friendly. Smears Obtained By FNNAC Are Of “Text Book” Quality. In This Prospective Study Of 160 Cases, An Attempt Is Made To Compare Both The Techniques FNAC And FNNAC With Reference To Diagnostic Adequacy And Diagnostic Accuracy.
