原始语种摘要: In the initial assessment of thyroid nodules, thyrotropin (TSH) has very low sensitivity for assessing functional thyroid nodules (FTNs). The false negativity in FTNs and the false positivity in non-FTNs misinterpreted by TSH will raise unnecessary assessment costs. Therefore, the aim of this study is to explore the values of the TSH and color flow Doppler sonography (CFDS) combined strategies in reducing the unnecessary assessment costs.
