When a Thyroid Biopsy is performed, occasionally there is an inadequate number of cells to successfully diagnose the issue. In these cases the patient will have to schedule an additional appointment for another biopsy.
When visiting our clinic, we test our samples for adequacy before they leave our facility, ensuring no additional biopsy appointments will have to be scheduled. Florinda Russell, our cytotechnologist, is a seasoned veteran when it comes to analyzing thyroid biopsies. Currently, shes boasts a 98% adequacy rate, compared to 86% at other local health care providers.
