To investigate the diagnostic performance of cytology (fine-needle aspiration cytology [FNAC]), thyroglobulin (fine-needle aspiration thyroglobulin [FNA-Tg]), and combination of them in the washout of fine-needle aspiration for those patients who have suspicious metastatic lymph nodes of differentiated thyroid cancer.

Impact of ultrasonographic features, cytomorphology and mutational testing on malignant and indeterminate thyroid nodules on diagnostic accuracy of Fine Needle Cytology samples: a prospective analysis of 141 patients.
Fine Needle Cytology (FNC) is the first-line diagnostic method to determine the benign or malignant nature of thyroid nodules. The grey zone of cytological classifications remains, however, a crucial ...
Tuberculosis (TB) is an ongoing global health problem. There is still major obstacle in detection of TB despite availability of various diagnostic techniques. The fine needle aspirate cytology (FNAC) ...
This study was conducted to evaluate the diagnostic utility of cell block material in fine needle aspiration (FNA) of thyroid nodules.
The diagnostic yield of endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) cytology widely varies depending on the treatment method used. Liquid-based cytology (LBC) has gained popularity i...
India, being a developing country, harbors the third largest human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected population in the world, and HIV-associated lymphadenopathy is commonly encountered. HIV lympha...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between prognosis and fine needle aspiration cytology character of papillary thyroid cancer.
150 patients who had suspected pancreatic malignancy were planed to be enrolled in this study. Equal cytological samples of each patient undergoing EUS-FNA were examined by digital image a...
A clinical trial is proposed, to clinically validate, in a US population, the diagnostic performance of a new genetic test (ThyroidPrint). It will determine the nature of thyroid nodules t...
Background: Preoperative pathologic diagnosis of subepithelial tumor (SET) can improve clinical decision making. Although EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) is currently considered th...
Pancreas cancer and precancerous cysts can be difficult to diagnose. Sometimes biopsies do not show cancer when cancer is actually present. We hypothesize that genetic differences exist in...
Conducting a fine needle biopsy with the aid of ENDOSCOPIC ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
Using fine needles (finer than 22-gauge) to remove tissue or fluid specimens from the living body for examination in the pathology laboratory and for disease diagnosis.
Usage of a single needle among two or more people for injecting drugs. Needle sharing is a high-risk behavior for contracting infectious disease.
The major hormone derived from the thyroid gland. Thyroxine is synthesized via the iodination of tyrosines (MONOIODOTYROSINE) and the coupling of iodotyrosines (DIIODOTYROSINE) in the THYROGLOBULIN. Thyroxine is released from thyroglobulin by proteolysis and secreted into the blood. Thyroxine is peripherally deiodinated to form TRIIODOTHYRONINE which exerts a broad spectrum of stimulatory effects on cell metabolism.
Creation of a small incised opening in a vein to permit the passage of a needle or cannula for withdrawal of blood, administration of medication, or in diagnostic or therapeutic catheterization. (Dorland, 28th ed.; Stedman, 26th ed.)
A diagnostic test is any kind of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. For example: to diagnose diseases to measure the progress or recovery from disease to confirm that a person is free from disease Clin...
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
