What´s new in salivary gland FNA: Updates to the Milan System. Dr. William F. Faquin, MD, PhD
Salivary gland cytology presents diagnostic challengeds, but recent advances have helped to refine this process. The Second Edition of the Milan System includes a streamlined, unform reporting system for salivary gland FNA with revised ROM´s for each diagnostic catagory, and it incorporates the latesst ancillary markers and molecular profiles to increase the accuracy of salivary FNA. In addition, an emphasis is placed on correlating salivary gland FNA with image analysis and with a clinical management algorithm. Taken together, these advances have helped to significantly improve the effectiveness of salivary gland FNA and lead to better overall patient care.
