Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) is a fast and noninvasive diagnostic technique that yields sufficient material for the molecular characterization of neuroblastic tumors by means of image cytometry and interphase fluorescent in situ hybridization. In this study, the authors examined the utility of FNA material in the molecular characterization of a group of neuroblastic tumors in children.
