Being a scholar of Papanicolaou for a long time, the tireless Cytologist Aristeidis Diamantis, has given us exceptional books and scientific articles.
His new book published in Athens in 2019, is entitled :
“The scientific work of George N. Papanicolaou, as revised by a modern cytologist”,
The author describes Papanicolaou’s journey from the very beginning up to the moment he invented and established the life-saving Pap test. At the same time Ar. Diamantis reveals and discusses the issues to which Papanicolaou’s work has not been able to respond adequately.
Enriched with beautiful images, this book illuminates the existing medical literature.
This publication is undoubtedly a comprehensive study of Papanicolaou’s huge scientific work. A work which, as the author demonstrates, remains highly relevant, being the basic procedure for the early detection of cervical cancer.
