Rosetta GX Reveal

New approach doing testing on stained cytology slides instead of needle washout samples during the biopsy. Scraped material from a stained slides from Wright’s pap and diff-Quik. Small data set limits present use.

ThyGen X reflex  ThyraMIR

Novel approach to diagnosis. Results mixed

Small cross sectional data set.

    Good afternoon!
    My name is Adriana Melinte, I am from Bucharest, Romania. I am 37 years old. I was diagnosis with Medullary Thyrodian Cancer, in 2009, when I did thyroidectomy. After surgery, my calcitonina was 9. In 2010 I had central and bilateral lymph nodes dissection and after surgery my calcitonina was undetectable will January 2017, when it became 4. In march 2018 it was 10. I had ecopgraphies, CT and an Ocreoscan, but nothing could be seen. I have mutation CYS 634 on exon 11, as my mother did (she died because of MTC in 2011). in July I have to repeat my calcitonina, and most probably my doctor will recommend another PET.
    I would like to know if Rosetta could provide investigations for such little calcitonina like mine. For me it is very important to find where is the ill cell. Any information would be helpful. Please help me.

    Thank you
    Adriana

      Adriana,
      The rosetta test has no place in your case.
      Just get calcitonin and CEA and neck ultrasounds.
      When the lymph node is big enough to see on imaging then you do something.
      ethanol or radiofrequency ablation or more surgery.
      Chasing a low calctonin is not smart.
      Yes there is still a small amount in your neck.
      It is not going to hurt you until it gets bigger but then you can ablate it.
      Dr.G.

      The doubling time is not fast.
