Cytopathology Team

TCP pathologists are here to support you.

Thyroid Cytopathology Partners is partnered with Veracyte, the South San Francisco-based leader in molecular cytology, to provide cytopathology review for samples submitted for the Afirma® Thyroid FNA Analysis. We have assembled a highly-trained, sub-specialized group of cytopathologists who exclusively review thyroid nodule FNAs, ensuring exposure to both common and rare thyroid lesions.
