Cytology

Cytology (from Greek κύτος, kytos, "a hollow"; and -λογία, -logia) means "the study of cells".

Cytology is that branch of life science, which deals with the study of cells in terms of structure, function and chemistry. Based on usage it can refer to:

   • Cytopathology: the study of cellular disease and the use of cellular changes for the diagnosis of disease. Cell biology: the study of (normal) cellular anatomy, function and chemistry.

Dr. Byrne has received extensive training in cytology and performs cytology on specimens from your pet during your visit to AESCA. He then will discuss the results with you and the importance of those results for your pet.

Dr. Byrne uses cytology to diagnose infections, tumors, including some forms of skin cancer, inflammatory skin disorders, parasitic skin disorders, ear infections, and hair disorders.
