The most important prerequisites for good cytology are fresh specimens correctly handled and prepared. Considerable experience, however, is required to differentiate reactive from tumor cells, but in any patient where the CSF cell count is raised cytological examination should be undertaken, with the aim of identifying precisely the nature of the nucleated cells.

The most important of these are the proton density, T2 relaxation time, T1 relaxation time and diffusion. By manipulating the radiofrequency pulses these individual characteristics in different tissues can be highlighted to provide contrast between lesions and the normal background. As the CNS is between 80 and 85% water and the hydrogen nucleus is a proton MRI has been developed into a sensitive technique for imaging the brain and spine (Fig. 2). In MRS, instead of using the magnetic resonance signal to construct a cross-sectional image from the protons associated with water these can be suppressed and the tiny signal from protons in other molecules can be collected from one or more tissue volumes and can be displayed graphically (Fig.

If lymphoid tumors are suspected, myelomas and B-cell lymphomas can be further classified using antibodies to ␬ and ␭ light chains and immunoglobulin heavy chains. Refinement and diagnosis is now greatly enhanced by the use of in situ hybridrization, various molecular techniques and flow cytometry.
