Ultrasound Elastography in Imaging Patients With Thyroid Nodules

This clinical trial studies how well ultrasound elastography works in imaging patients with thyroid nodules. Diagnostic imaging, such as elastography, uses shear waves to measure the stiffness and compressibility of tissue and may be a better way to image thyroid nodules.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
