Study shows need for consensus on thyroid nodule management

Ultrasound SmartBrief | May 24, 2016

TI-RADS guidelines based on sonographic thyroid imaging had higher specificity, positive and negative predictive values, accuracy and area under the receiver operator characteristics curve than American Thyroid Association or Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound guidelines for managing thyroid nodules. The retrospective study of more than 1,000 thyroid nodules showed the ATA guidelines had higher sensitivity than the TI-RADS or SRU guidelines. The findings show that consensus guidelines are needed to inform clinical management of thyroid nodules, said Dr. Hannah Chung, who presented the study at a meeting of the American Roentgen Ray Society.
