Cytomorphologic features in thyroid nodules read as "suspicious for malignancy" on cytology may predict thyroid cancers with the BRAF mutation.

Abstract

Some morphologic parameters have been studied to help predict the BRAF(V600E) mutation using cytopathologic specimens, which can indicate which nodules should undergo further testing. The aim of this study was to investigate the value of cytomorphologic parameters to predict the BRAF(V600E) mutation in nodules read as "suspicious for malignancy" on cytology… (More)
