AIM Thyroid nodules represent a common clinical issue. Amongst other minimally invasive procedures, percutaneous microwave ablation (MWA) poses a promising new approach. The goal of this retrospective study is to find out if there is a correlation between volume reduction after 3 months and 99mTc-uptake reduction of treated thyroid nodules. PATIENTS, METHODS 14 patients with 18 nodules were treated with MWA. Pre-ablative assessment included sonographical and functional imaging of the thyroid… CONTINUE READING
