OBJECTIVE Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TIRADS) is a simple and reliable reporting system for the prediction of malignancy. We aimed to determine the role of TIRADS in the prediction of malignancy in subcategories of Bethesda Category III, atypia of undetermined significance (AUS) and follicular lesion of undetermined significance (FLUS). DESIGN & PATIENTS A total of 461 nodules with AUS cytology in 450 patients and 179 nodules with FLUS cytology in 168 patients were included… CONTINUE READING
