Modern aspects of thyroid nodules diagnostic: radial diagnostic view

Cover Page


In a discussion paper a number of Russian proposals in the draft Recommendations for the diagnosis of nodular goiter is proposed by the position of radiological diagnostics specialist. The ultrasound diagnostic section introduces the concept of an integrated ultrasound, which assesses not only the gray-scale features, but also color Doppler mapping and vascular elastography of the focus and organ. Fine-needle aspiration biopsy is proposed to carry out only under ultrasound navigation and multifocally. The problem of calcitonin should be considered from the perspective of false-positive and false-negative data and its optimal results after fine-needle aspiration biopsy.
