Microvascular blood flow in the thyroid: Preliminary results with a novel imaging technique

Nodules in the thyroid are present in 13-76 % of ultrasound (US) imaging evaluations; although only 4-15 % are malignant. A better understanding of thyroid nodule vascularity might be clinically helpful and the purpose of this study was thus to determine the flow imaging capabilities of a new prototype US image processing technique (SMI; Toshiba Medical… CONTINUE READING
