The value of lateral magnification soft x-ray roentgenography using a Computed Radiography (CR) system was studied. ROC curve analysis revealed that a CR system has virtually the same, or a better ability than a screen-film system for detecting thyroid calcification. According to our criteria the CR system an accuracy rate of 77.1% in malignant/benign diagnosis was obtained.
