This study was designed to establish the normal size of the thyroid gland in children. Real-time ultrasound images of the thyroid gland in 126 healthy children were analyzed to determine the thyroid gland volume. Assuming each lobe to be a prolated spheroid, the long axis diameter (D1), short axis diameter (D2) and thickness (D3) were measured. The volume of each lobe (V) was estimated, using a standard geometric formula: V = D1 x D2 x D3 x lambda/6. The total volume of the thyroid gland was… CONTINUE READING
