Abstract

Purpose: The thyroid fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is a fast, reliable, and economical method for interpretation of thyroid nodules. This method contributes to the later management of patients and reduces unnecessary surgical interventions. This study aimed to demonstrate the contribution of bedside adequacy assessment during FNAC to the accuracy rates of cytological competence and final histological diagnosis.
