Abstract

Improvement of SAT in sonography is fairly parallel to that in cytology even though there is a lag of improvement in the latter. Smear pattern is also related to the clinical stage of SAT. Ultrasound-guided FNA is a convenient method of obtaining sufficient and representative specimens in patients with SAT.
