The purpose of this multicenter study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of real-time sonography (US) for differentiating diffuse thyroid disease (DTD) from normal thyroid parenchyma among radiologists blinded to patients' clinical, serologic, and imaging history and to determine the differences in diagnostic accuracy among radiologists from different institutions.

Sonography has gained a broad field of applications in current anesthetic practice. During airway management, it could have an important role, because it allows real-time measurement of anatomical asp...
Reliability of Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TI-RADS), and ultrasonographic classification of the American Thyroid Association (ATA) in differentiating benign from malignant thyroid nodules.
Ultrasonography (US) is the best diagnostic tool for initial assessment of thyroid nodule. Recently, data reporting systems for thyroid lesions, such as the Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (...
To compare the diagnostic performance of ultrasonography (US) and computed tomography (CT) for diagnosing incidentally detected diffuse thyroid disease (DTD) in patients who underwent thyroid surgery ...
Various efforts have been made to improve the diagnostic accuracy of thyroid fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology. We changed the diagnostic system by reducing the number of pathologists responsible ...
To determine the diagnostic accuracy of multi-detector CT (MDCT) for differentiating gallbladder cancer from acute and xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis using previously described imaging features.
The conventional sonography is frequently used to detect incidental focal liver lesions because of its availability, innocuity and low cost. Nevertheless, sensibility and specificity of co...
Robotic telesonography, in which an expert remotely performs sonography in real time, has recently emerged as an opportunity to perform sonography at remote centres. Using a robotic system...
As many as 70-85% subjects diagnosed with a follicular lesion on biopsy and undergoing surgery will have benign lesions verified by histopathology after surgery. Currently there is no met...
The present study was undertaken prospectively to compare the diagnostic significance of the SSST with the CCT in hypertensive patients with suspected PA using the FST as the reference sta...
Nodular goiter is a highly prevalent disease in iodine-deficient areas. Usually nodule assessment includes ultrasonography (US) and fine-needle aspiration (FNA), but some benign nodules ca...
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.
A common form of hyperthyroidism with a diffuse hyperplastic GOITER. It is an autoimmune disorder that produces antibodies against the THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE RECEPTOR. These autoantibodies activate the TSH receptor, thereby stimulating the THYROID GLAND and hypersecretion of THYROID HORMONES. These autoantibodies can also affect the eyes (GRAVES OPHTHALMOPATHY) and the skin (Graves dermopathy).
An aggressive THYROID GLAND malignancy which generally occurs in IODINE-deficient areas in people with previous thyroid pathology such as GOITER. It is associated with CELL DEDIFFERENTIATION of THYROID CARCINOMA (e.g., FOLLICULAR THYROID CARCINOMA; PAPILLARY THYROID CANCER). Typical initial presentation is a rapidly growing neck mass which upon metastasis is associated with DYSPHAGIA; NECK PAIN; bone pain; DYSPNEA; and NEUROLOGIC DEFICITS.
Autoantibodies that bind to the thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) receptor (RECEPTORS, THYROTROPIN) on thyroid epithelial cells. The autoantibodies mimic TSH causing an unregulated production of thyroid hormones characteristic of GRAVES DISEASE.
A condition characterized by the presence of rudimentary THYROID tissue at the base of the TONGUE. It is due to failed embryonic development and migration of thyroid tissue to its normal location. The lingual thyroid usually cannot maintain adequate hormone production thereby resulting in HYPOTHYROIDISM.

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
