Abstract

Background: High values of fine needle aspiration washout thyroglobulin (FNAB-Tg) are diagnostic for metastatic lesions of thyroid cancer. However, there is not a consensus on cutoff for high FNAB-Tg level. In this study, we aimed to determine a more accurate and standardized parameter for FNAB-Tg.
