Computer-aided thyroid nodule diagnosis demonstrates sensiti
Sensitivity of an ultrasound computer-aided system for diagnosis of thyroid nodules was similar to that of a radiologist, although specificity and accuracy were lower, according to study findings.

Jung Hwan Baek, MD, PhD, professor in the department of radiology at the University of Ulsan College of Medicine in Korea, and colleagues evaluated 89 adults (mean age, 43.5 years) with thyroid nodules (57.8% benign; 42.2% malignant). Researchers sought to determine the effectiveness of an ultrasound computer-aided diagnosis system for its diagnosis of malignant thyroid nodules and categorization of nodule characteristics compared with a radiologist review of ultrasound images.{e4e3d5b0-37de-44e7-8ac2-4ecf58f9e083}/computer-aided-thyroid-nodule-diagnosis-demonstrates-sensitivity-similar-to-radiologists
