Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy

We perform fine needle aspiration biopsies on palpable nodules Monday through Friday. Patients from outside or off-site clinics can be seen 9AM-12PM and 1PM-3PM, at Clinic E in the Stanford Advanced Medicine Center (Cancer Center), 875 Blake Wilbur Drive.  No appointment is necessary.  Directions are on the FNA Patient Information Sheet (PDF). Patients from SHS Clinics or inpatients can be seen 9 AM to 5 PM at their location.

Patients will need to have a written request for an FNA, including the ordering physician's name and contact information, and an ICD9 code.  This information is required for registration purposes.

To help facilitate the process, please notify the FNA team that a patient will be coming and provide them with information about the patient and any requests for special studies (e.g. flow cytometry):

Fine needle aspirates will be available at the VAPAHCS in October 2006
