According to the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), a cytotechnologist (CT) is a laboratory specialist who is responsible for examining human cell samples under the microscope for early signs of cancer and other diseases. The cytotechnologist analyzes subtle cell changes both nuclear and cytoplasmic and compares these changes to normal cell findings for that body site. The cytotechnologist must be familiar with normal anatomy and histology for all the body systems and must be familiar with the disease processes that can affect these body sites. By comparing these facts with the clinical history provided for the patient, the cytotechnologist can judge the significance of the cell findings observed.
The National Institutes of Health predicts that cytotechnologist jobs will experience faster than average growth. According to the American Society for Cytotechnology, the average hourly pay for cytotechnologist positions was $30.51 in 2007. Cytotechnologists have an unlimited choice of practice settings: hospitals, for-profit laboratories, clinics, public health facilities, and industry.
