Background: The objective of this study was to compare the efficacy and procedure time of ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration biopsy (US-FNAB) of thyroid nodules, according to the nodule size. Methods: US-FNABs of thyroid nodules performed between June 2007 and December 2007 were studied. We divided these patients into three groups according to the largest diameter of their nodules.Cited by: 115.
Jan 25, 2012 · On the whole, our current evidence shows that fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is an accurate biopsy for evaluating breast malignancy if rigorous criteria are used. With high sensitivity and specificity, most benign and malignant breast lesions can be reliably diagnosed by FNAB.Cited by: 55. Fine Needle Aspiration Biopsy (FNAB) Using ultrasound to create an image of the growth, an interventional radiologist uses a small needle to extract a cell sample from the nodule. This sample is tested for cancer and abnormal levels of thyroid hormones, both of which can be warning signs of a thyroid condition.
Core needle biopsy for a palpable mass. During a core needle biopsy, a clip may be placed inside the breast (you cannot feel it) to mark the location of the lump.
