- Apply the latest molecular diagnostic techniques for evaluating follicular/Hürthle cell lesions of the thyroid gland, prognostication of papillary thyroid carcinomas, and other difficult challenges.
- Obtain balanced guidance on ultrasound-guided FNA biopsy with contributions from both radiologists and endocrinologists.
- Recognize essential clinical features by comparing your specimens to more than 1,700 full-color photomicrographs that depict the full range of fine needle aspiration biopsy findings, including unusual as well as typical patterns.
