Utility of Colour Doppler Sonography in Patients with Graves’ Disease

This study demonstrates the beneficial role of colour doppler sonography in the initial diagnosis of Graves’ disease. Preliminary data support the role of this investigative modality in predicting clinical remission in patients with Graves’ disease.
