The Procedure

Following thyroid ablation treatment you should see a moderately large reduction in size of the nodule over the first  6 months to approximately 60-70% of it's original size.

Several clinical studies have published outcomes showing results that vary from 70% volume reduction up to complete nodule disappearance. Below are some of the published graphs showing volume reduction and photographic examples pre and post procedure.

Long-term Results

Before treatment and 18 months after treatment.
