Özet

Objectives: The main purpose of the present study was to determine the efficacy of real-time elastography (RTE) and strain elastography (STE) in the diagnosis of different thyroid diseases. We also aimed to calculate the cut-off points for the differential diagnosis of subacute thyroiditis (SAT), Graves' disease (GD), and Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT), which have a similar B-mode sonographic appearance.
