Abstract:

Introduction Cytology from thyroid nodule biopsy often shows atypia of undetermined significance AUS leading to surgery for ultimately benign histology. Molecular testing, such as ThyGenX, can augment clinical decisionmaking in thyroid nodule management. This project examined ThyGenX testing in the San Antonio Military Health System SAMHS.Methods This was a non-industry cost analysis and review of patients in the SAMHS who had thyroid nodulecytology with ThyGenX testing over an 18 month period of time.
