A signiﬁcant expansion involved the chapter on advanced techniques to include more methodology and application of some current tools such as immunochemistry, electron microscopy, ﬂowcytometry, and molecular testing. The challenge was to accommodate the recommended changes without obfuscation of the Atlas’ in-tended objective of a practical, user-friendly cytologic compilation, which was the successful foundation of the ﬁrst edition. It is our hope that, by careful editing to en-sure a clear and concise narrative, seamless integration of new and updated information into the existing text, judicious selection of new and enhanced photomicrographs, and the use of lists that highlight criteria for differential diagnosis, we have produced a second edition that will continue to ﬁnd preferred residence beside the micro-scope because of its usefulness.
