Objective: We developed a novel dual-component molecular assay as an ancillary method to improve clinical decision-making in patients with cytologically indeterminate thyroid nodules. The assay includes next-generation sequencing (NGS) based detection of mutations in 23 thyroid cancer related genes and digital polymerase chain reaction (dPCR) evaluation of the expression levels of a microRNA strongly associated with thyroid cancer. The method was designed as a “rule-out&#...

Introduction: The new Italian cytological classification of thyroid nodules published in 2014 has replaced the TIR3 ‘indeterminate’ category into two subcategory with different risk of thyroid cancer (TC): TIR3A, low-risk indeterminate lesion and TIR3B, high-risk indeterminate lesion. The aim of our study was to describe the incidence of TIR3B in a large prospective cohort of patients, the risk of TC, and its correlation with anamnestic, ultrasonographic (US) and cyt...
