However, most studies of surgeon-performed USFNAC have focused on thyroid nodules.4 On review of literature there is evidence that ultrasound-guided surgeon-performed FNAC
carries a number of benefits, including reduction of multiple physician visits, assessment by a physician familiar with neck anatomy, as well as potentially decreasing wait times to surgery.5 The purpose of this study was to evaluate the Solitary thyroid nodules by surgeon-performed ultrasound-guided FNAC
and compare with the histopathological diagnosis.
Four cases of non-neoplastic cysts reported on FNAC
were diagnosed as two cases of each mucocele and lymphoepithelial cyst on histopathology.
Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology (Bethesda) is preferred for interpretation of FNAC
result and guidance regarding further management.
All patients who were suspected with hepatic lesions, clinically or radiologically, were subjected to percutaneous FNAC
using a Franzen needle holder (Seven Star Scientific Instruments) under radiological guidance with a 22-gauge needle or long length spinal needle (Romsons) attached to a 20-mL disposable syringe (Dispovan) during suspended respiration.
samples of draining lymph nodes (Table 1) were collected from dogs attended.
She was sent to the cytopathology section for FNAC
. Examination revealed a well-healed cesarean section scar.
All thyroid nodules, which were suspected to have thyroid malignancy from history and clinical examination, and morphologically proven cases of PTC either on FNAC
or histopathology, were included in the study.
However, Specimen from FNAC
can be used to sub-classify breast lesions (7-9).
Aim of this study was to explore the accuracy of color flow Doppler and results may help in recommending its use locally to screen thyroid nodules with distinguishing high risk of malignancy with subsequent biopsy FNAC
. The rationale was to determine the diagnostic accuracy of color flow Doppler in differentiating between benign and malignant thyroid nodules and using FNAC
as gold standard.
The patient underwent surgery under general anesthesia, and histopathological examination confirmed the FNAC
