fine needle aspiration biopsy of the parotid gland mass
Procedure: aspiration biopsy
fine needle aspiration biopsy of the parotid gland masses
This is a prospective diagnostic test study. Inclusion criteria are all consecutive patients with parotid gland masses referred for treatment at our center, from January 2003 to December 2007.
The gold standard for the diagnosis of malignancy is the surgical pathology report of the parotidectomy specimen.
Cytologist and pathologist will be blind. Diagnostic accuracy is determinded by Bayesian analysis.
