B-Flow Twinkling Sign in Preoperative Evaluation of Cervical Lymph Nodes in Patients with Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma

Abstract

Papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) is the most common histologic type of differentiated thyroid cancer. The first site of metastasis is the cervical lymph nodes (LNs). The ultrasonography (US) is the best diagnostic method for the detection of cervical metastatic LNs.
