Several studies have shown that ultrasound guidance can serve as a valuable aid in improving the diagnostic yield of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy of thyroid nodules. In this study, we evaluated the combined impact of ultrasound-guidance, rapid on-site evaluation of FNA specimens, and different cytologic preparations (fresh and alcohol-fixed smears, Millipore filter) and staining methods (Diff-Quik and Papanicolaou stains) on the diagnostic yield of thyroid FNA. Ultrasound-guided FNA was… CONTINUE READING
