The Second Edition Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology
- 515 Downloads
The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (TBSRTC), a uniform and standardized reporting system for thyroid fine needle aspiration (FNA), was originally established in 2009 and updated in 2017. The system is widely accepted in the United States and globally.
It is specifically designed for the reporting of thyroid follicular and C-cell–derived lesions based on clearly outlined diagnostic criteria.
