About this book

Thyroid fine needle aspiration is one of the most commonly performed cytologic procedures and is the standard diagnostic method for managing the patient with a thyroid nodule.  Until now, there has been no uniform system for reporting the results of thyroid fine needle aspiration (FNA) in the U.S.

The terminology described in this book is an important advance in the field of cytopathology. It represents the results of the multidisciplinary National Cancer Institute Thyroid Fine Needle Aspiration State of The Science Conference, held in Bethesda, MD in October, 2007.

The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology will provide the reader with a unified approach to diagnosing and reporting thyroid FNA interpretations. It will serve as a reference guide not just for pathologists, but also endocrinologists, surgeons, and radiologists.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book maintains a consistent style and tone that makes the recommendations readily accessible and comprehensible. … All chapters are also amply illustrated, with a high standard of photographic quality maintained throughout. … The text is accompanied by outstanding photographs that do a surprisingly good job of illustrating the kinds of cytologic scenarios that lead to the use of this category. … providing an attractive, practical, and concise primer that is sure to be welcomed by students and seasoned professionals … .” (Michael J. Thrall, The ASC Bulletin, Vol. XLVIII (2), March, 2011)
