Conventional criteria for the evaluation of thyroid nodules are inaccurate in identifying the small proportion of malignant neoplasms. The diagnostic accuracy of fine‐needle aspiration biopsy (FN AB) for cytology was therefore assessed in 562 patients with nodular thyroid disease, 373 of whom (66·4 per cent) had histological confirmation of the cytological diagnosis. Sixty‐one aspiration biopsies were positive for malignancy, and the diagnosis was confirmed histologically in 59 of these (96·7… Expand
