Abstract´╝Ü Objective To study the effectiveness of ultrasonography in thyroidnodule disease detection and malignant/benign lesion differentiation during health check-up.Method Thyroid examination data of Peking Union Medical College Hospital(PUMCH)staff over the last 6 years were retrospectively reviewed.The results of thyroidnodule scanning by using ultrasonography were compared with the findings of physical examinations.Results Among 6348 health check-up receivers from 2006 to 2010,450 were found to have thyroidnodule(detection rate 7.09%).Twenty malignant lesions were confirmed in histological examinations(mean detection rate per year 0.38%).In 2011,1706 thyroid glands were scanned by both physical examination and ultrasonography,and 525 thyroidnodules were identified(detection rate 30.77%).Surgical operations were performed for 22 suspected malignant tumors,and 18 malignant lesions were finally confirmed(detection rate 1.06%).Conclusion Ultrasonography can improve the detection of thyroidnodule.Irregular shape,microcalcification,and rich blood-flow may indicate malignant nodules.
