Diagnostic Methods in Clinical Thyroidology provides a forum for discussion of controversial issues in three major categories: diagnosis of thyroid function, non-invasive evaluation of structural abnormalities, and needle biopsy diagnosis of thyroid nodules. For each category, a free interchange of ideas based on extensive clinical experience is followed by a summary that strives to resolve these controversial issues within a framework of sound clinical practice.
