Patient
female, 38 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Ultrasonography of the thyroid
     

    A transverse grey-scale sonography showing a nodule, which is hypoechoic with irregular margins in the right lobe of the thyroid (arrows) also seen are the carotid artery (C) and the trachea (T).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasonography of thyroid;

    A transverse grey-scale sonography of the lower part of the nodule revealing two microcalcifications (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasonography of thyroid;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Color Doppler of the thyroid

    A longitudinal color Doppler scan showing hypervascularity of the nodule, with a typical chaotic arrangement.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Color Doppler of thyroid;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Power Doppler of the thyroid

    A longitudinal power Doppler scan revealing high hypervascularity with an irregular arrangement.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Power Doppler of thyroid;
