“Consideration of practicality of Mobile Rose in Thyroid Puncture Aspiration Cytology.”
LBC cytology with BD CytoRichTM Red Preservative,
the accuracy of the Mobile Rose test is high, with sensitivity (94.6%), specificity (100%), and positive predictive value (100%),
useful for rapid determination of FNA materials on-site, operation time 90.1 seconds, effective for rapid evaluation of specimens.
Determination can be made without the need for a pathologist or cytotechnologist. High false negative rate (42.9%), difficulty in recognizing small cell clusters.
Above points were presented as a result of the verification.
