Surgeon-performed ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration cytology (US-FNAC) and radiologist-performed US-FNAC are both accepted forms of thyroid nodule assessment. To date there have been no studies comparing cost of evaluation between these two models. The aim of this study is to compare surgeon-performed thyroid US-FNAC to radiologist-performed US-FNAC. The primary outcome of interest was cost of surgeon-performed US-FNAC compared to cost of radiologist-performed US-FNAC. Secondary outcome of interest was time to treatment decision.

We evaluated telecytology rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE) for thyroid ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration. To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first case-control clinical trial of thy...
: Thyroid fine needle aspiration (FNA) is the mainstay for diagnosis of malignancy, and is an integral part of current thyroid nodule assessment. The present study analyses the diagnostic accuracy of ...
Although conventional endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) has previously been considered first-line for sampling subepithelial lesions (SELs), variable accuracy has resulted ...
To compare the value of the Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System proposed by Kwak (KWAK TI-RADS) and the 2015 American Thyroid Association (ATA) guidelines for diagnosis of medullary thyroid carc...
Ultrasound sonography provides a quick method for determining which nodule to sample for fine needle aspiration biopsy in thyroid nodules. On the other hand, the computed tomography examination is not...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between prognosis and fine needle aspiration cytology character of papillary thyroid cancer.
To evaluate the application value of contrast-enhanced ultrasound in the diagnosis of thyroid nodules using fine needle aspiration.
Thyroid nodules are a very common clinical problem with prevalence of up to 68% in adults on high-resolution ultrasound .Ultrasound used in order to differentiate between benign and malign...
Thyroid nodules are common (prevalence of 12.7% in women), but are malignant in only 5% of cases. International experts agree that a preliminary cytological examination by fine needle aspi...
This is a clinical trial to compare two needles used in biopsy techniques to acquire tissue from pancreatic cancer. The hypothesis is that the tissue yield, as measured by tumor DNA and ce...

The collecting of fetal blood samples via ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of the blood in the umbilical vein.
The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.
A procedure for removal of the crystalline lens in cataract surgery in which an anterior capsulectomy is performed by means of a needle inserted through a small incision at the temporal limbus, allowing the lens contents to fall through the dilated pupil into the anterior chamber where they are broken up by the use of ultrasound and aspirated out of the eye through the incision. The small incision allows the surgeon to use very few or even no stitches to close the tiny wound. There is usually no need for hospitalization and patients may resume most activities within days.

Using fine needles (finer than 22-gauge) to remove tissue or fluid specimens from the living body for examination in the pathology laboratory and for disease diagnosis.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
