New Data Suggest Veracyte's Afirma® Gene Expression Classifier Cost-Effectively Resolves Inconclusive Thyroid Nodule FNA Biopsy Results
Date:9/1/2011

mination under a microscope, are typically used to rule out cancer. An estimated 450,000 thyroid nodule FNAs are performed in the U.S. each year, but they are challenging to interpret, producing inconclusive results in up to 30% of cases. Current guidelines recommend that most patients with inconclusive thyroid FNAs go to surgery to remove all or part of their thyroid. This approach is invasive, costly and can result in lifetime hormone therapy for the patients. Inconclusive results, however, carry only a 20-30% chance of malignancy.
