ABSTRACT
ObjectiveTo investigate the value of strain ratio (SR) in the diagnosis of Hashimoto's thyroiditis.Methods 116 patients who had been diagnosed clinically as Hashimoto' s thyroiditis were enrolled in the study.Those patients were classified into four groupsthe hyperthyroidism group,the euthyroidism group,the subclinical hypothyroidism group,and the clinical hypothyroidism group.50volunteers with normal thyroid functions were enrolled as a control group.SR of the thyroid and sternocleidomastoid muscle of same side was calculated.The correlation coefficient between the elasiticity SR and the serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) was evaluated and their differences in the diagnosis of Hashimoto's thyroiditis were compared.ResultsThe Spearman's correlation coefficient between the SR and the serum TSH was 0.605,which was significant (P =0.000).The SR increased in an ascending order among the group with hyperthyroidism,the control group,the group with euthyroidism,the group with subclinical hypothyroidism,and the group with clinical hypothyroidism.ConclusionsElastography SR is valuable way for evaluating the progression of Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
