These are more effective with smaller determinate varieties but are insufficient for indeterminate
As Kakudo and Bychkov note, clinicians and patients may be confused by indeterminate
reports, and most thyroid nodules with indeterminate
cytology are benign or indolent.
Clinical validation data published in JAMA Surgery show that the next-generation classifier maintains the original Afirma test's high sensitivity (91%), while identifying 30% more benign nodules (68% specificity) among those deemed indeterminate
results can exclude patients from treatment with immunosuppressives and clinical trials, or at the very least, delay treatment for repeat testing, chest x-rays, and infectious disease referrals, Ms.
"Our novel radiomic LDCT-based approach for indeterminate
screen-detected nodule characterization appears extremely promising however independent external validation is needed," the authors write.
The classification at the International Leprosy Congress, held at Madrid in 1953 was a major improvement over the preceding classifications (Box 9).11 The major problem with this classification was that the pure neuritic type was included in indeterminate
, lepromatous and tuberculoid groups.
WB results were considered negative to increase the certainty in assigning true-positivity to samples equal or above the calculated cut-off value.
QFT-G tests with indeterminate
results at HMH were identified from January 2015 to May 2016.
More successes--and failures--were seen at the final reading, with 53.8% of 420 final readings labeled successful, 39.8% labeled indeterminate
, and 6.4%, or 27 individual antigen pairs, labeled as failures.
Following total thyroidectomy, histological diagnosis showed that, of the 70 patients with indeterminate
lesions, 17 (24.3%, 13 females and 4 males) had a malignant lesion.
In classical calculus, the indeterminate
forms are :
According to Rosetta Genomics, RosettaGX Reveal, its first-of-its-kind microRNA classifier for indeterminate
thyroid nodules, is a Thyroid microRNA Classifier for the diagnosis of indeterminate
thyroid FNA smears.
John's appurtenance to the campus is indeterminate
Interindeterminacy Two predicates like "is A" and "is B" are interindeterminates if and only if there is an individual x such that it is indeterminate
whether x is A and, at the same time, it is indeterminate
whether x is B.
On the basis of their sonographic morphologic characteristics the lesions were categorized as benign, malignant or indeterminate
, following which color and pulsed Doppler examination were performed.
