This type of cortical nodule had the following constanturographic features: (1) no surface protrusion effect, (2) location in the middle third of the kidney, and (3) smooth stretching of adjacent calices (figs. 3 and 4).
We have created a Bayesian classifier to predict whether a thyroid nodule is benign or malignant using sonographic and demographic findings. Our classifier performed similar to or slightly better than experienced radiologists when evaluated using 41 thyroid nodules with known pathologic diagnosis.
