  • About the Profession

    The cytotechnologist, working under the direction of a pathologist, detects cell changes caused by different disease processes. This specialist prepares cell samples for examination after special staining techniques and then studies the slides for minute abnormalities in the color, size and shape of cell substances.

    In many cases, these findings are the first warning signs of cancer. Most cytotechnologists find employment in a hospital, clinic or private laboratory.
