Fine‐needle aspiration of thyroid nodules: A study of 4703 patients with histologic and clinical correlations
TLDR
Using 6 diagnostic categories for the classification of thyroid fine‐needle aspiration (FNA) cytology, the experience with FNA from 2 institutions was studied with emphasis on cytologic‐histologic correlation, source of errors, and clinical management. Expand
Performance differences between conventional smears and liquid-based preparations of thyroid fine-needle aspiration samples: analysis of 47,076 responses in the College of American Pathologists
TLDR
Comparisons of conventional smears to LBPs for thyroid FNA slides circulated in the College of American Pathologists Interlaboratory Comparison Program in Non-Gynecologic Cytology found LBPs performed worse than conventional smear for cases with a reference diagnosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma, however,LBPs performed better than conventionalsmears for Cases with a benign reference diagnosis.

Does Hurthle cell lesion/neoplasm predict malignancy more than follicular lesion/neoplasm on thyroid fine‐needle aspiration?
TLDR
The results suggest that an FNA diagnosis of HLN does not predict more malignancy than FLN, and Males and older patients with a HLN FNAdiagnosis carry a higher risk of Hurthle cell carcinoma upon thyroidectomy. Expand
Evaluation of Cystic Salivary Gland Lesions by Fine Needle Aspiration
TLDR
A systematic approach to the diagnosis of cystic salivary gland lesions by FNAB can result in a correct diagnosis in > 70% of cases. Expand
Thyroid fine‐needle aspiration with atypia of undetermined significance
TLDR
The current study was performed to investigate the potential impact of eliminatingtypia of undetermined significance on the sensitivity and specificity for detecting thyroid neoplasms by FNA. Expand
Clinical impact of second opinion in thyroid fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC): A study of 922 interinstitutional consultations
TLDR
The study indicates the need for a quality‐control program of outside thyroid FNA slides, especially in “high discrepancy categories” as discussed in the article, and estimates that second opinion of these 922 cases resulted in potential cost saving of $940,166 based on current Medicare reimbursement codes.

Endobronchial ultrasound‐guided transbronchial needle aspirate (EBUS‐TBNA):A proposal for on‐site adequacy criteria
TLDR
To conclude, an effective communication between the clinician and cytologist, an algorithmic approach to diagnosis, and the on‐site adequacy criteria proposed in this study can markedly improve the diagnostic yield of the procedure. Expand
Paragangliomas: classification, pathology, and differential diagnosis.
TLDR
The clinicopathologic, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural features of paragangliomas and neuroendocrine neoplasms of the larynx are presented with a discussion of the differential diagnosis. Expand
Cytology applications of p63 and TTF‐1 immunostaining in differential diagnosis of lung cancers
TLDR
The utility of the p63 and thyroid transcription factor‐1 panel is examined in cytologic cell‐block samples of lung cancers including both primary and metastatic cancers of pulmonary origin, and cases of nonpulmonary cancers metastatic to lung in which differential diagnoses included a lung primary. Expand
Fine needle aspiration of thyroid nodules in the pediatric population: A 12‐year cyto‐histological correlation experience at north shore‐long island jewish health system
TLDR
The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology was published in 2007 and the institution's experience in the pediatric population calculating the rate of malignancy for each diagnostic category was studied. Expand
