Author(s):
Dr. Sonali Vijay Kimmatkar and Dr. P Naga Praveen
Abstract:
Introduction: One category of endocrine gland is the thyroid gland. It is the only large gland that can be directly inspected in a clinical setting. The superficial position also facilitates the evaluation of its normal anatomy, normal anatomical variants, and pathological conditions through the use of high resolution real-time grey-scale sonography.
Material and Methods: The pathology and radiodiagnosis departments of Madha Medical College in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, conducted this cross-sectional study. The research was conducted between January 2015 and December 2015. Individuals aged between 10 and 75 years who exhibit thyroid lesions on sonograms.
Results: While 30% of the hypoechoic nodules in this investigation turned out to be malignant, the bulk of the hypoechoic nodules in this examination were found to be malignant. Every case that ultrasonography had determined to be malignant was confirmed to be such by the FNAC. Isoechoic lesions were present in both benign and malignant tumors. The echoes were hyperechoic in most benign lesions.
Conclusion: This investigation included FNAC correlation and sonographic assessment of thyroid lesions. It might be concluded that women are more likely to get thyroid lesions. The anechoic nodules were entirely composed of benign lesions.
