Dr.Guttler’s Comments on his abstract to be presented at the American Thyroid Association national meeting on October 4 in Washington DC. The title is seen below.

  1. I sent needle wash samples for Mutation and microRNA to Be tested on my thyroid nodule patients.
  2. The results of ThyGenX and ThyraMIR combination testing impact surgical decisions of cytologically indeterminate thyroid nodules.
  3. Helping to avoid unnecessary surgical resection.
  4. Target nodules in need of surgery.
  5. Importantly, surgical decisions made using ThyGenX and ThyraMIR combination test results were appropriately aligned with risk of malignancy over clinical follow-up.
  6.  A ThyGenX and classifier ThyraMIR combination test effectively rules in and rules out higher risk of malignancy.
  7. What did we learn? If you have a thyroid biopsy and told it was indeterminate and you need surgery, say no and ask for a second opinion to obtain molecular testing on your nodule.
  8. It can save you a surgery or aim you in the right direction to have a lobe removed, total , or with a neck dissection.
