BRAF(V600E) mutation analysis of liquid-based preparation-processed fine needle aspiration sample improves the diagnostic rate of papillary thyroid carcinoma.

Abstract

Early detection and diagnosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma are important for successful management of patients. Liquid-based preparations (Thinprep) of fine needle aspirations from thyroid nodules are now widely used and are replacing conventional smears because residual samples can be used for ancillary tests. Detection of the BRAF(V600E) mutation in… (More)
