Background: Shear wave elastography (SWE) is an emerging technique that can be used to evaluate malignancy in many organs. The aim of this study was to address the role of elasticity indices as a possible predictive marker for detecting papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and quantitative assessment of SWE for differential diagnosis of benign and malignant thyroid nodules.Methods: One hundred and nineteen patients with thyroid nodules undergoing SWE before...

Background: Recent studies have shown associations of thyroid hormone levels with metabolic syndrome (MetS) among euthyroid individuals, though there have been some inconsistencies. We evaluated the relationships between thyroid hormones and MetS in euthyroid middle-aged subjects in a large cohort.Methods: Retrospective analysis of 13 496 euthyroid middle-aged subjects who participated in comprehensive health examinations was performed. Subjects were gro...
