The distribution of cytological diagnoses of the biopsyproven cases of PTC, according to the six categories of the Bethesda system of reporting thyroid cytopathology
was done as follows: 6 cases were (8%) nondiagnostic, 3 (4%) benign, 0 (0%) AUS/FLUS, 2 (2.
is a branch of pathology that studies and diagnoses diseases on a cellular level; the discipline of which was founded by George Nicolas Papanicolaou in 1928.
The Afirma Genomic Sequencing Classifier is the next-generation version of the Afirma Gene Expression Classifier, and is used to identify patients with benign thyroid nodules among those with indeterminate cytopathology
results in order to preserve the thyroid.
The introduction of the new simplified Bethesda system for reporting Thyroid cytopathology
into six categories logically relates to the prognosis of thyroid diseases and increases the reproducibility of diagnosis.

Several studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of cytopathology
for the diagnosis of oral premalignant lesions and OSCC, (1,3-5) and Fontes et al.
by puncture, as a diagnosis instrument, was used initially in the mid 1920s (3, 4).
Intraoperative consultation and cerebrospinal fluid cytopathology
are also covered.
They used a prospective observational study of incidence of cervical cancer after the third consecutive negative result based on individual level data in a Dutch national registry of histopathology and cytopathology
