英文摘要: Abstract(#br) Purpose(#br)The aim of this study is to evaluate the elasticity index of thyroid nodules by sonoelastographic imaging, and to determine the cut-off value to distinguish malignant nodules from benign nodules with optimum sensitivity and specificity.(#br) Materials and methods(#br)Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of 84 cases were evaluated with B-mode US and Sonoelastography (USE) preoperatively. The elasticity score (ELX 2/1) index of the nodules were calculated. Seventy-three patients with diagnostic biopsy results were included in this study.(#br) Results(#br)According to the FNAB results, 9 (12 %) nodules were malignant, 64 (88 %) nodules were benign. All malignant nodules were papillary carcinoma, and their diagnosis was confirmed with thyroidectomy. The ELX 2/1 index...
