The Paris System for Reporting Urinary Cytology (PSRUC) provides a standardized reporting schema for urine cytology with defined criteria for each diagnostic category. We report the impact at our institution of adopting the PSRUC on the frequency and distribution of urine cytology diagnoses, with particular attention to the “atypical” category as it serves as a potential laboratory quality control measure.
