Our goal was to assess the diagnostic efficacy of ultrasound (US)‐guided fine‐needle aspiration (FNA) of thyroid nodules according to size and US features.
Adequacy criteria for thyroid FNA evaluated by ThinPrep slides only
Adequacy criteria for thyroid fine‐needle aspiration (FNA) recommended by The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (TBS) were developed with smears, but they are commonly applied toExpand
Comparison of Different‐Gauge Needles for Fine‐Needle Aspiration Biopsy of Thyroid Nodules
To compare the adequacy of 23‐, 25‐, and 27‐gauge needles in the fine‐needle aspiration biopsy of thyroid nodules to develop guidelines for the collection of better specimens for cytologic diagnosis.
The role of the cytopathologist's interpretation in achieving diagnostic adequacy of head and neck fine needle aspirates
We aimed to assess the potential role of interpretation by cytopathologists on the level of diagnostic adequacy of head and neck fine needle aspirations (FNAs).
Utility of a formatted pathologic reporting system in thyroid core needle biopsy: A validation study of 1998 consecutive cases
TLDR
The pathologic reporting system of thyroid CNB based on the recently proposed protocol by the Korean Endocrine Pathology Thyroid Core Needle Biopsy Study Group is analyzed and its usefulness is evaluated. Expand
Bethesda classification is a valuable guide for fine needle aspiration reports and highly predictive especially for diagnosing aggressive variants of papillary thyroid carcinoma
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to determine malignancy rates in nodules with different cytology results and evaluate the diagnostic value of Bethesda for variants of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). Expand
Ultrasound-Guided Fine Needle Aspiration of Thyroid Nodules: A Consensus Statement by the Korean Society of Thyroid Radiology
TLDR
Consensus recommendations for the US-FNA technique and related issues to improve diagnostic yield are provided, based on a comprehensive analysis of the current literature and from the consensus of experts. Expand
Thyroid nodules with suspicious ultrasound findings: the role of ultrasound-guided core needle biopsy.
TLDR
CNB demonstrates high rates of conclusive and accurate diagnosis in sonographically suspicious thyroid nodules, which may reduce repeat fine needle aspiration, diagnostic surgery, and unnecessary follow-up. Expand
Ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration of thyroid nodules: factors affecting diagnostic outcomes and confounding variables
TLDR
Thyroid FNA is a safe and reliable procedure for cytological assessment of thyroid nodules and older patients are more likely to have non-diagnostic samples. Expand
Factors Responsible for Non-Diagnostic Cytology on Ultrasound-Guided Fine-Needle Aspiration of Thyroid Nodules
TLDR
It was observed that none of the hypoechoic nodules yielded non-diagnostic cytology and radiologists must be aware of the technical details, cytologic preparation, and procedure-related complications associated with US-guided FNA to optimize patient care and the diagnostic outcome. Expand

TLDR
Thyroid nodular disease is common in the UK and 50% of nodules are considered solitary, but the problem increases with age and the number of solitary nodules is more common in women. Expand

TLDR
Two helpful aspects of this technique that were thought to improve the overall diagnostic yield were the use of color and power Doppler "vascular mapping" of the nodule just before biopsy and on‐site cytologic control. Expand
Ultrasound‐guided fine‐needle aspiration biopsy of the thyroid: Role of on‐site assessment and multiple cytologic preparations
TLDR
It is concluded that ultrasound‐guided FNA combined with on‐site evaluation and different cytologic preparations can significantly improve the diagnostic accuracy of thyroid FNA specimens. Expand
Nondiagnostic thyroid fine-needle aspiration biopsies are no longer a dilemma.
TLDR
Most patients with a Nondiagnostic fine-needle aspiration biopsy of the thyroid have benign disease and low-risk Patients with a ND-FNAB on repeat FNA warrant a more conservative approach. Expand
A Comparative Study of Fine Needle Aspiration and Fine Needle Non-Aspiration Biopsy on Suspected Thyroid Nodules
TLDR
FNA and FNNA are useful and cost-effective techniques for the pre-operative assessment of patients with thyroid nodules, however, due probably to its minimally invasive procedure, FNNA produces specimens of better quality and reduces inadequate results. Expand
Assessment of nondiagnostic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspirations of thyroid nodules.
TLDR
Despite ultrasound-guided FNA, there remains a significant risk of initial nondiagnostic cytology, largely predicted by the cystic content of each nodule, according to a multivariable model. Expand
Ultrasound-guided percutaneous thyroid nodule core biopsy: clinical utility in patients with prior nondiagnostic fine-needle aspirate.
TLDR
Thyroid nodule CFNACB is safe and clinically useful in selected patients when a prior FNA reading is nondiagnostic and should be strongly considered as an alternative to surgery in individuals with two prior nondignostic FNAs. Expand
Sonographically guided fine-needle biopsy of thyroid nodules: the effects of nodule characteristics, sampling technique, and needle size on the adequacy of cytological material.
TLDR
Selecting finer needles (24-25 G) for sonography-guided FNB of thyroid nodules and using the capillary-action technique decreased the rate of inadequate material in cytological examination. Expand
Ultrasonographic characteristics predictive of nondiagnostic results for fine-needle aspiration biopsies of thyroid nodules.
TLDR
Clinical and ultrasonographic (US) characteristics predictive of nondiagnostic results and clinical characteristics of patients and the US features of thyroid nodules were compared according to nondoagnostic or diagnostic results. Expand
Revised American Thyroid Association management guidelines for patients with thyroid nodules and differentiated thyroid cancer.
TLDR
Evidence-based recommendations in response to the appointment as an independent task force by the American Thyroid Association to assist in the clinical management of patients with thyroid nodules and differentiated thyroid cancer represent, in the authors' opinion, contemporary optimal care for patients with these disorders.
