Abstract

This study discusses the value of fine-needle-aspiration cytology in the early detection of occult carcinoma in patients treated with radiation therapy for gynecologic malignancies. Fifty-eight patients with normal cervical cytology were evaluated with 77 fine-needle aspirations (FNA) starting as early as 3 months after therapy. The results of FNAs added about 30% predictability to the accuracy of diagnosing carcinoma to that of the conventional methods used today like pelvic examination and radiographic studies. Fine-needle aspiration of the pelvis after radiation therapy is an accurate and safe method to sample the parametria, pelvic sidewalls, and other sites of possible recurrence, and may be used as part of the routine follow-up of these patients.
