OBJECTIVE Ultrasound (US) measurement of thyroid volume is used in diagnosis and follow-up of patients with thyroid disease. We assessed a new formula and technique for thyroid volume calculation, based on an automatically continuous trace transverse surface area (aTSA) calculation, to ascertain where this technique could reduce inter-observer variation… CONTINUE READING
