Background And Objectives: Nearly twothird of the population show nodules in high resolution ultrasound of thyroid. Less than 10% of nodules are malignant. The reporting of such nodules is often subjective and does not guide proper management. To standardize the reporting, the concept of thyroid imaging reporting and data system (TIRADS) was developed. The present study aims to stratify the thyroid nodules based on key ultrasound features into various risk groups and assess their malignant… CONTINUE READING
