Armando Filie, M.D.

Senior Clinician
Head, Cytopathology

Dr. Filie has promoted the utilization of new ancillary techniques and well-established ancillary tests in the diagnosis of cancer and other diseases in cytology. His recent studies have demonstrated that minute amounts of cytology material are sufficient for detecting EGFR and KRAS mutation and diagnosing cytomegalovirus infection.

Dr. Filie also oversees the clinical research efforts of the Cytopathology Section, Laboratory of Pathology, which centers around the application of emerging molecular techniques to cytology where conventional processing methods and well-established ancillary techniques fall short in providing sufficient information for an accurate cytologic diagnosis.
