Comparison of the diagnostic accuracy of thyroid fine-needle aspiration in follicular-patterned lesions using a 5-tiered and a 6-tiered diagnostic system: a double-blind study of 140 cases with histological confirmation.


Five-tiered and 6-tiered systems for reporting thyroid fine-needle aspiration (FNA) results are used widely throughout the world.
