Abstract
Fine needle aspiration cytology(FNAC) holds a main role in assessing thyroid nodules. But nonnegligible rate of thyroid cytology is reported as uncertain, indeterminate or inadequate for diagnosis. Recently, the microhistologic evaluation by core needle biopsy(CNB) under ultrasound sonographical guidance has been reported to show high accuracy for the diagnose of thyroid nodules. Aim of this review was to furnish the state of the art of this topic by summarizing previous published data about indication, diagnostic performance, and complication of CNB in thy-roid lesions compared with FNAC
Key Words: Thyroid nodule, Core needle biopsy, Fine needle aspiration cytology, Indication, Complication
