BACKGROUND The Bethesda criteria are proposed for appropriate stratification of malignancy risk in thyroid nodules, but controversy exists regarding their accuracy and reliability in decision making. Additionally, previous studies have suggested higher rates of both malignancy and false negative fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA) associated with increasing nodule size. This study aims to determine the accuracy of ultrasound (US)-guided FNA using the current Bethesda criteria in surgical… CONTINUE READING
