Background: Elastography is non-invasive ultrasound method of imaging based on estimation of mechanical properties (elasticity) of the tissue. Recent data has shown its ability to differentiate benign from malignant tumours. Decreased flexibility in comparison to around tissue is characteristic for malignant tissues, like most thyroid carcinoma (except follicular thyroid carcinoma). Analysis of the image gives the result presented as a ROI1/ROI2 index.Ob...
