BACKGROUND This study evaluated the effectiveness of elastosonography (ES) scoring and strain index (SI) in diagnosing patients with thyroid nodules composed primarily of Hurthle cells. METHODS This study retrospectively analyzed 57 patients with thyroid nodules composed predominantly of Hurthle cells on fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). Patients were evaluated by thyroid ultrasonography (US), ES scoring, SI, US guided FNAC, and histopathology. RESULTS Histopathologically, 12 (21.1… CONTINUE READING
