Real-time ultrasonography (US) was used to guide fine-needle aspiration biopsy of 111 breast masses and three axillary lymph nodes. The masses included 51 (45%) nonpalpable lesions. Two different guidance techniques were used, with satisfactory results. Lesions less than 1 cm in diameter could be accurately aspirated, and the method allowed quick and(More)

We have correlated imprint cytology findings in thyroid tumors to the results of preoperative fine needle aspiration and operative specimen histology. Specificity of imprint cytology proved greater than that of fine needle aspiration cytology and topographic correlations were particularly helpful. Imprint cytology can improve the intraoperative histologic(More)
Gastric smears have been performed on 835 patients, among which examinations 771 (92 percent) were available. Histology assumed in parallel showed a dysplasia lesion in 56 cases: 14 of the 601 negative smears (2.3 percent), in 33 of the 40 suspect smears (82 percent), and in 9 of the 130 cases of positive smears (7 percent). Gastric dysplasia evidence both(More)
The authors report a 3-year experience in the field of real-time ultrasonically-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsies of abdominal lesions in a Cancer Institution. The procedure is performed using a linear-array electronic biopsy transducer. Results obtained in a series of 265 aspirations are analyzed. Major benefits and applications of this technique in(More)
