Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) remains crucial in the evaluation of thyroid nodules with suspicious clinical findings or ultrasound (US) features suggestive of malignancy. The use of US-guidance for FNAB allows real-time visualization of the needle, but is also highly operator-dependent. Physicians from many specialties (endocrinologists, otolaryngologists/endocrine surgeons, nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, and pathologists) are involved in the diagnostic workup of thyroid nodules and a standardized and meticulous technique for US-FNAB is essential for lowering the yield of nondiagnostic specimens and false-negative results. This video, therefore, demonstrates a well-proved technique and technical tips to increase the diagnostic results from US-FNAB.
