Myung Ho Rho, MD, of the Inje University College of Medicine in Korea, and Dong Wook Kim, MD, of the Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine in Korea, evaluated 209 patients (170 women; aged 22-75 years) who received preoperative neck CT and subsequent thyroid surgery to determine the diagnostic accuracy of individual CT features, as well as cutoff criteria for detecting diffuse thyroid disease (DTD).
