Inspissated colloid in a thyroid nodule

Discussion:

Inspissated colloid and microcalcifications in a thyroid nodule can sometimes be confused on ultrasound. Reverberation artifact ("comet-tail artifact") can be useful to help make the diagnosis of inspissated colloid. Unlike microcalcifications, inspissated colloid does not confer increased malignancy risk to a thyroid nodule.
