OBJECTIVE To quantitatively assess the imaging characteristics of thyroid nodules in dual-energy computed tomography (CT) imaging for differentiation of benign and malignant lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Dual-energy CT imaging was performed on 97 surgically removed thyroid nodule specimens prior to their pathologic examination. Iodine- and water-based material decomposition images and 101 sets of pseudomonochromatic images of each thyroid specimen were reconstructed for quantitative imaging… CONTINUE READING
