Various patterns of calcification have been detected in benign and malignant thyroid nodules on ultrasonography (US). Microcalcification has been found to be highly associated with papillary thyroid carcinoma. However, other patterns of calcification have unclear clinical significance. The aim of this study was to evaluate which pattern of calcification could be predictive of malignancy. A total of 1,431 thyroid nodules of 1,078 patients who received preoperative ultrasound examinations and… CONTINUE READING
