Özet

Background/aim: Microcalcifications are generally accepted as highly specific for thyroid malignancy, especially for papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). The aim of this study was to determine the significance of microcalcification within nodules that were classified as being of "indeterminate cytology" (IC) according to fine-needle aspiration biopsy.
