Thyroid blood flow rate in man. Electromagnetic flowmetry during operation in euthyroid normal gland, nontoxic goiter, and hyperthyroidism.

Human thyroid blood flow rate (TBF) was measured during operations by electromagnetic flowmetry in 75 euthyroid patients with normal thyroid tissue, nodular goiter, or solitary adenoma, and in 22 hyperthyroid patients with diffuse or nodular goiter.
