Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether nuclear morphometric analysis could be used as an additional tool to determine the malignancy risk in cases of atypia of undetermined significance / follicular lesion of undetermined significance, thereby helping to prevent unnecessary surgery in this group of patients.
