PURPOSE To assess the value of real-time sonographic (US) elastography in the diagnosis of subacute thyroiditis (SAT). METHODS This study included 29 lesions from 20 patients with SAT, 33 nodules from 24 patients with multinodular goiter, and 27 nodules from 23 patients with thyroid cancer. Eighty-nine lesions in these patients were examined by grayscale US and real-time US elastography. An elasticity score (ES), based on four classes of tissue stiffness (class 1 for soft lesions; class 2 and… CONTINUE READING
