A new, simple, and accurate ultrasonic method is elaborated for thyroid volume determination with commercially available high-resolution real-time equipment. The method takes into account the special and variable shape of the thyroid. The measurements were taken in three perpendicular sections. Volume calculations were done by applying the corrected ellipsoid model and computer-aided numerical integration, as well as by the conventional simple ellipsoid model. The accuracy of the method was… CONTINUE READING
