BackgroundFine needle aspiration (FNA) of thyroid nodules is a cornerstone of surgical decision making in thyroid cancer. The most widely utilized system for reporting thyroid FNA results is the Bethesda System, which includes predicted malignancy rates for each FNA category. To date there have been few studies to determine whether these predictions are widely applicable.MethodsAll thyroid FNA results at the Queen Elizabeth II Health Science Centre from 2006–2010 were included in this study… CONTINUE READING
