Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to assess and compare the diagnostic power of B-mode ultrasonography (US), power Doppler US (PD), and ultrasound elastography (USE) in detecting malignant lymph nodes (LNs) during follow-up of patients who were operated on for differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC).
