Abstract: Touch imprint cytology (TIC) facilitates rapid diagnosis of breast diseases in women attending triple assessment clinics. Some pathologists, in our centre, feel that pathological interpretation of TIC slides is contentious when the lesions are radiologically indeterminate (R3), as these can lead to potentially higher false positive or false negative cytology results. We hypothesised that: '(R3) lesions are more likely to have higher false positive or false negative TIC and/or be inadequate for TIC assessment'. In other words, 'imaging influences cytological classification especially when indeterminate'.
