Original Article Acoustic radiation force impulse induced strain elastography and point shear wave elastography for evaluation of thyroid nodules
Int J Clin Exp Med
The aim of the study was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) induced strain elastography (SE), point shear wave elastography (p-SWE), and their combined use in differentiating thyroid nodules. This retrospective study included 155 thyroid nodules (94 benign and 61 malignant) in 136 patients. Ultrasound, ARFI-induced SE and p-SWE were performed on each nodule. Receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC) analyses were performed to assess thefatcat:felyiyz5z5huhatdf6bfo5glya
