Three hundred twenty patients were subjected to ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) over a 3 year period (April 2006 - March 2009). These included liver (125 cases), lung (81 cases), abdominal and mediastinal lymph nodes (29 cases), ovary (14 cases), omentum (12 cases), pancreas (10 cases), kidney (10 cases), mediastinum (8 cases), gall bladder (8 cases) etc. The aim of this study was to evaluate the overall utility of ultrasonographic guided FNAC in the diagnosis of…

TLDR
This retrospective study found that Ultrasonography and computed tomography guided fine needle aspiration cytology had a high sensitivity and specificity in diagnosing deep seated lesions.
Study on Ultrasound and Computed Tomography-Guided Aspiration Cytology in Deep Seated Thoracic and Abdominal Lesions in Civil Service Hospital.
TLDR
USG and CT guided FNAC is relatively simple and efficient procedure for the diagnosis of deeply seated abdominal and thoracic lesions of thorax and abdomen.
FINE NEEDLE ASPIRATION CYTOLOGY OF ABDOMINAL ORGANS--TEN-YEAR SINGLE CENTER EXPERIENCE.
TLDR
In conclusion, intra-abdominal FNA is a reliable, sensitive and specific method with a high diagnostic accuracy for the diagnosis of malignant lesions and can be utilized as a preoperative procedure for the management of all intra-ABdominal lesions.
Image Guided Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology of Abdominal, Pelvic and Thoracic Lesions- Analysis of 125 Cases
TLDR
USG / CT-guided FNA cytology plays an important role in diagnosis of nonpalpable abdominal, pelvic and thoracic deep seated lesions and is safe, outpatient procedure for rapid diagnosis of malignancy.
Evaluation of intrathoracic lesions by image guided fine needle aspiration cytology
TLDR
Evaluating the spectrum of intrathoracic lesions by image guided fine needle aspiration cytology permits categorization and distinction between non- neoplastic and neoplastics lesions concludes that the latter are more common than the former.
Study of image guided fine needle aspiration cytology in cases of hepatic mass lesions
TLDR
Guided FNA is a first line of investigation in space occupying lesions of liver as the procedure is safe, simple, rapid, effective and can be employed for pathological evaluation of both malignant and non-malignant hepatic lesions.
Role of radiological-assisted cytology in intra-abdominal lesions: A 3 years’ experience in a tertiary care center
TLDR
Ultrasound and CT-guided FNA cytology had a significant role in diagnosis of palpable and nonpalpable intra-abdominal lesions.
Yield of Ultrasound Guided Fine-Needle Aspiration of Intraabdominal Masses and Lymph Nodes: A Prospective Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
USG guided FNAC provides a good diagnostic yield and there is no difference in diagnostic yield between the various location of the lesions, sampling techniques, number of needle passes and qualification of the operators.
Importance of image guided fine needle aspiration in diagnosis of benign and malignant lesions
TLDR
Percutaneous FNAC under image guidance surpass the diagnostic difficulties and facilitates the rapid management of the patient.

Deep-seated thoracic and abdominal masses: usefulness of ultrasound and computed tomography guidance in fine needle aspiration cytology diagnosis.
TLDR
Clinico-imaging evaluation and image-guided FNAC in conjunction with guided FNA are very accurate and safe in diagnosing deep-seated mass lesions in the thorax and in the abdomen, however, the role of FNA in tissue differentiation of solid lesions such as lymphoma requires further study.
Ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration cytology for diagnosis of mass lesions of liver.
TLDR
It is found that the frequency of different benign and malignant space occupying lesions of liver from patients attending for FNAC in Mymensingh is not significant and FNAC can be practice in any centres where ultrasound facility and specialist pathologists are available.
Role of fine needle aspiration cytology in the diagnosis of pulmonary lesions.
TLDR
This study was carried out in 59 patients, who underwent FNAC of lung lesions in the department of Pathology, Mymensingh Medical College, Bangladesh to find out the specimen adequacy and frequency of both benign and malignant lesions of the lungs in the authors' areas.
[Cytology and biopsy by fine needle aspiration with ultrasound guidance in abdominal tumors].
TLDR
FNAB has a high sensibility and specificity and should be used as a routine procedure in the study of abdominal tumors and is well correlated with surgery, clinical follow up and other diagnostic methods.
Comparison of fine needle aspiration cytology and needle core biopsy in the diagnosis of radiologically detected abdominal lesions.
TLDR
FNA cytology is more sensitive and accurate than NCB in the diagnosis of abdominal lesions, and also offers more rapid diagnosis, however, the combination of these sampling techniques increases diagnostic sensitivity and occasionally provides more accurate classification of tumours and benign lesions.
Safety and Yield of Ultrasound-Assisted Transthoracic Biopsy Performed by Pulmonologists
TLDR
US-assisted cutting-needle biopsy of lesions ≧20 mm in diameter is safe in the hands of pulmonologists and the yield for neoplastic disease including mesothelioma is high.
Ultrasound guided fine needle biopsy of the liver for cytology and histology.
TLDR
Ultrasound guided fine needle biopsies were performed in 69 patients with space occupying lesions in the liver and cytology detected 95% of malignant cases, and Menghini core histology detected 89%.
Diaphragmatic and subcutaneous seeding of hepatocellular carcinoma following fine-needle aspiration biopsy.
TLDR
The discovery of associated metastatic subcutaneous and metastatic diaphragmatic nodules on the needle track after fine-needle biopsy aspiration under echography is reported, increasing the therapeutic morbidity of hepatocellular carcinomas.
Fine Aspiration versus Fine Cutting Needle, and Comparison between Smear Cytology, Inclusion Cytology and Microhistology in Abdominal Lesions
TLDR
Two hundred patients underwent ultrasound guided percutaneous fine needle biopsy of focal solid abdominal lesions using 22 gauge aspiration and cutting needles to obtain the highest retrieval rate and histologic treatment of the samples yields a higher typing accuracy.

TLDR
In chronic hepatitis, the needle aspiration biopsy has a limited importance in the diagnosis because it cannot notice architectural features, and in secondary tumours of the liver, the nucleo-cytoplasmic lesions are better observed.
