ABSTRACT: In order to fully understand the anxiety level of the patients who will have ultrasound-guided puncture biopsy, and the survey results will guide the future clinical care to reduce the anxiety score of the patients, and to im-prove the satisfaction of them, which reflects the quality of care, we used Zung Self-rating Anxiety Scale (SAS) to investigate outpatients who will have ultrasound-guided puncture biopsy in a upper first-class hospital by convenience sampling way. The results showed that the SAS standard score of the patients was higher than the Chinese normal population's, and there is significant difference between the patients and the normal population's score (t = 47.12, P < 0.001). So for reducing the patients' anxiety level we should give health education and care intervention to the patients before the operation. This reflects the Patient-centered Culture and Excellent-quality Care in China.
