PURPOSE Although fine-needle aspiration biopsy is the most useful diagnostic tool in evaluating a thyroid nodule, preoperative diagnosis of thyroid nodules is frequently imprecise, with up to 30% of fine-needle aspiration biopsy cytology samples reported as "suspicious" or "indeterminate." Therefore, other adjuncts, such as molecular-based diagnostic approaches are needed in the preoperative distinction of these lesions. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN In an attempt to identify diagnostic markers for the… CONTINUE READING
