PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) in reducing thyroid nodule volume while preserving thyroid function as measured by immunological response. MATERIALS AND METHODS 12 patients (9 females) whose average age was 56.9 years (37 - 81) were treated with HIFU in an ambulatory setting. All patients had a single benign thyroid nodule treated in one HIFU session. The median nodular outline volume (NOV) was 3.4  ml (range 0.6 - 5.0… CONTINUE READING
