ThyGenX and ThyraMIR (Interpace Diagnostics)

Record ID 32018000085
Authors' recommendations: Imaging studies with ultrasound, combined with cytological examination of thyroid biopsies collected by fine-needle aspiration (FNA), can aid in distinguishing between benign and cancerous thyroid nodules; however, from 10% to 25% of biopsies are indeterminate, meaning that a diagnosis of cancerous versus benign cannot be made on the basis of cytological examination. Molecular profiling can be used to identify molecular alterations that are specific to thyroid malignancy in order to distinguish malignant from benign thyroid cytology and, thus, molecular profiling of FNA samples of indeterminate status could aid in distinguishing between benign and cancerous thyroid nodules. This report examines the ThyGenX and ThyraMIR tests.
