Abstract

OBJECTIVE:To evaluate diagnostic value of Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System published by American College of Radiology (ACR TI-RADS) in 2017, ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (US-FNA), and the combination of both methods in differentiation between benign and malignant thyroid nodules.METHODS:The data of US-FNA and ACR TI-RADS are collected from 159 patients underwent thyroid surgery in our hospital, which include a total of 178 thyroid nodules. A Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology category of ≥IV and an ACR TI-RADS category ≥4 are regarded as diagnosis standards for malignancy in US-FNA and ACR TI-RADS, respectively. The pathological results after surgery are considered as the gold standard. The sensitivity, specificity, accuracy, positive predictive value and negative predictive value of the ACR TI-RADS, US-FNA and the combination of both methods for the differential diagnosis of thyroid nodules are calculated, respectively.RESULTS:The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of ACR TI-RADS are 85.4%, 37.5%and 72.5%, respectively. The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of US-FNA are 70.0%, 100%and 78.1%, respectively. After combining these two methods, the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy increase to 99.23%, 37.50%and 82.58%, respectively. The sensitivity of ACR TI-RADS is higher than that of US-FAN, and the sensitivity of combining these two methods is also higher than that of using ACR TI-RADS and US-FNA alone.CONCLUSION:The established ACR TI-RADS can help in selecting the target during nodule puncture, while the combination of ACR TI-RADS and US-FAN can further improve diagnostic ability for detecting malignant thyroid nodules.
