Comparison of the Diagnostic Efficacy of Ultrasound-Guided Core Needle Biopsy With 18- Versus 20-Gauge Needles for Thyroid Nodules.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To compare the diagnostic efficacy, complication rate, and core needle biopsy (CNB) specimen yield in 18- versus 20-gauge ultrasound (US)-guided CNB for diagnosis of thyroid nodules. METHODS We included 81 consecutive thyroid nodules with US-guided biopsy by a 20-gauge core needle and 86 consecutive thyroid nodules with US-guided biopsy by an… (More)
