FNA & Cytodiagnosis Center
The Department of Pathology’s Cytodiagnosis Center is staffed by cytopathologists with special expertise in Fine-Needle Aspiration (FNA). It is available to clinicians who wish to refer ambulatory patients with superficial masses for FNA and evaluation by our cytopathologist. Our Center is easily located within the division of anatomic pathology at the VCU Medical Center on the 6th floor of the Gateway Building. There is valet parking at the entrance, and a Patient and Visitor Parking Deck nearby, too.
