The diagnosis and management of follicular carcinoma of the thyroid gland remains a controversial topic. Color-Doppler (CD) imaging has been expected for the differential diagnosis between follicular adenoma and follicular carcinoma. CD imaging examination of follicular tumors has revealed that high-velocity pulsative blood flow penetrating the tumor is a(More)
The introduction of various techniques for minimally invasive parathyroidectomy (MIP) has changed both the conceptual and surgical approach to parathyroid disease. The perceived advantages of minimally invasive surgery among both clinicians and patients have been a major factor in the development of new surgical techniques, as well as refinement of(More)
Diagnosis of thyroid cancer has been based mainly on palpation and also soft X-rays because of its calcification. As the gland itself is very small and Aspiration Biopsy Cytology (ABC) has had a high level of diagnostic accuracy the clinical significance of ultrasonography did not become apparent for a long time. However, recently it has become possible to(More)
Thyroid blood flow related with thyroid function is of great importance in diagnosing thyroid gland disease. However, there has no report on such observations of thyroid blood flow dynamics, especially non-invasively and quantitatively. In this study new developed ultrasound duplex scanning system was used to measure the superior thyroid blood flow and(More)
