The authors note that they report on change in Afirma-benign nodules during a clinically relevant monitoring period, as cytologically
benign thyroid nodules are typically followed with ultrasound at 6-18 months.
In WP2 I will characterise these mutants cytologically
, genetically and by complementation to understand how the mutations affect recombination.
Aerobic and anaerobic cultures and acid-fast bacilli (AFB) stains of aspirated samples were negative, and cytologically
the samples were identified as mixed-cell inflammation.
Renal carcinomas include well-differentiated variants that may be cytologically
very similar to adenomas.
positive samples were considered to be evidence for the presence of metastatic malignancy, but negative samples were not considered sufficient evidence for the absence of malignancy.
It is sometimes difficult to cytologically
differentiate among Hashimoto thyroiditis, thyroid lymphoma, and thyroid carcinoma.
2) More specifically, the recommended diagnostic criteria for the diagnosis of melanoma in sentinel lymph nodes include (1) the presence of individual cells or nests of epithelioid or spindle cells foreign to the lymph node, (2) cytologic atypia, defined as large cells with nuclear pleomorphism, prominent nucleoli, or dusty cytoplasmic melanin granules, (3) positive staining for 1 or more melanocytic markers (eg, S-100, MART-1, Melan-A, HMB-45, MiTF, tyrosinase), and (4) identification of the cells on H&E-stained sections (not required if cytologically
atypical cells are confirmed on immunohistochemically stained tissue section).
The most common pattern of proliferation is that of cytologically
bland basaloid cells with peripheral palisading seen within the cellular nests.
Detection of human papillomavirus DNA in cytologically
normal women and subsequent cervical squamous intraepithelial lesions.
Patients had histologically or cytologically
confirmed locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC not eligible for surgery or radiation (stage IIIB or IV).
Polylobated and multinucleated Langerhans cells are, however, observed in LCS, and their nuclei are cytologically
It was designed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of the genomic test, which detects gene expression of cytologically
normal bronchial airway epithelial cells.
