Use of the TI-RADS scoring system in the evaluation of thyroid nodules

Aim: Thyroid ultrasonography-guided fine needle aspiration is known to be a cost-effective, safe diagnostic method for evaluating thyroid nodules but it is an invasive procedure. Various sonographic criteria have been proposed to estimate the risk of malignancy in thyroid nodules. TI-RADS (Thyroid Image Reporting and Data System) is one of these scoring systems. In this study, it was aimed to…
