Introduction: Although malignancy rate is low in thyroid nodules with nondiagnostic (ND) cytology, it is reported as higher in persistent ND nodules. We aimed to determine the role of ultrasonography (US) features and Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TIRADS) in the prediction of malignancy in patients with persistent ND cytology.Methods: 246 patients who underwent thyroidectomy with an indication of at least two ND cytologies were included in t...

BackgroundOur aim was to compare the effectiveness of five different risk-stratification systems using the ultrasonographical features of thyroid nodules in determining malignant histopathology.MethodsThe preoperative ultrasonography (US) features of 6925 nodules of 3030 patients who underwent thyroidectomy between 2007 and 2014 were analyzed retrospectively. The nodules were classified according to Kwak-TIRA...
