Detection of PI3CA Mutations in Aspirated Cyst Fluid is Comparable to Surgically Resected Tissues

Dr. Bennett's presentation covers minimally invasive diagnostics for lymphatic malformations. He focuses on isolated lymphatic malformations and their genetic aspects, discussing the use of cell-free DNA, specifically in cyst fluid, as a diagnostic tool. He mentions the importance of accurate genetic diagnosis in the context of new targeted treatments for these conditions. Dr. Bennett also touches on the challenges of detecting mutations with low variant allele fractions and variability within these malformations.
