Abstract
The clinical utility of thyroid fine needle aspiration (TFNA) interpretation as a necessary step in the management of patients with thyroid nodules has been an unquestioned success. However, the impact of TFNA has recently come under greater scrutiny. This is due to 3 main drivers: (1) the utilization of ultrasonography has led to an increase in detection of thyroid nodules, in turn, leading to an increase in the number of TFNA performed; (2) the introduction of the Bethesda classification scheme of TFNA has set the stage for ?equivocation creep,? in which pathologists are increasingly reluctant to classify TFNA as unequivocally benign or malignant; and (3) the introduction of molecular testing into clinical practice has coincided with equivocal TFNA results leading clinicians to demand expensive molecular tests in hopes of more accurately defining a nodule?s biology. This lecture focuses on these drivers and defines the criteria necessary for accurate and cost-effective interpretation of TFNA. This is an important topic because in the past decade, the number of thyroid malignancies per year has increased from roughly 21,000 (2002) to almost 60,000 (2012) while the death rate has been halved from 6.3% to 3.2%. In the coming era of cost-containment, it is essential that we apply common sense and critical data analysis to the interpretation of TFNA. If anything, the importance of traditional TFNA evaluation is as great today as it was when first introduced ? to the extent that the main purpose of TFNA now is to ?reduce the risk of surgery.?
