OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to examine subcentimeter thyroid nodules to determine their rate of malignancy, the accuracy of various ultrasound features in prediction of malignancy, and the utility of ultrasound-guided biopsy of these nodules. MATERIALS AND METHODS Included in this retrospective study were 104 patients in whom 108 thyroid nodules smaller than 1 cm had been biopsied. Diagnostic ultrasound examinations were reviewed, and nodules were evaluated for the following… CONTINUE READING
