Figure 6 (A, B): Calcifications. Longitudinal USG image (A) of the left lobe of the thyroid gland shows microcalcifications, i.e., multiple punctate bright echoes (arrowheads) without shadowing in a hypoechoic ill-defined nodule (arrow). The FNA diagnosis was papillary carcinoma. Transverse USG scan (B) of the right lobe of the thyroid gland shows multiple foci of calcification (arrowheads) within a nodule (arrow) classified as the "not-otherwise-specified" variety of macrocalcification. The pathologic diagnosis was hyperplastic nodule
