The test helps identify patients with benign thyroid nodules among those with indeterminate cytopathology
results in order to help patients avoid unnecessary diagnostic thyroid surgery.

The distribution of cytological diagnoses of the biopsyproven cases of PTC, according to the six categories of the Bethesda system of reporting thyroid cytopathology

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 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.18
