Integration of Molecular Ancillary Techniques into Routine Cytology Practice: Issues in Current State of the Art Critical Future Trends
Stewart M. Knoepp, MD, PhD
First, a brief overview of important molecular tests for cytologic specimens will be discussed. Information provided will be based on ordering, practice patterns, and experience at a large academic medical center, a multi-state private co-tenancy laboratory, and extensive literature review.
Next, an optimized approach for triaging cytologic tissue for accurate cytologic diagnosis as well as the performance of clinically relevant ancillary studies will be presented. Selected clinical scenarios and molecular tests will be discussed.
Lastly, the future need for optimization of molecular testing on cytology specimens in a coordinated-care environment (e.g. accountable care organizations) will be discussed.
Featured Case Study
FNA of an Inguinal Mass
A 44 year old man presented to the FNA clinic with a 2 cm right inguinal mass. Two years earlier, the patient underwent resection of a 3 cm subcutaneous mass from the lateral aspect of his right foot. A fine needle aspiration of the inguinal mass was performed by the pathologist.
