Although many large series demonstrate the effectiveness of thyroid fine-needle aspiration (FNA), measuring its accuracy has been suboptimal owing to inappropriate statistical methods. All thyroid fine-needle aspirates were correlated with corresponding histologic and cytologic follow-up for a 4-year period, and the accuracy was determined using receiver operator characteristic curves, which allow inclusion of nondiagnostic and indeterminate cases. There were 1,085 cases, 291 with follow-up… CONTINUE READING
