Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of thyroid nodules has been proposed as a preoperative screening method to reduce the number of patients with benign nodules referred for surgery. Only a few previously published studies have compared cytologic results with a systematic surgical control; furthermore, the role of ultrasound guidance for FNAB in obtaining representative material has been poorly evaluated. The authors tried to assess the diagnostic value of FNAB performed under ultrasonography… CONTINUE READING
