Aims: To evaluate the role of sonoelastography in solitary thyroid nodule with a pathological correlation. Subjects and Methods: This was a prospective observational study conducted in patients presenting with solitary thyroid nodule. It was carried out in AVBRH Hospital, Sawangi, Wardha, during July 2016–June 2019. One hundred and two patients were included in the study. Most of them were female patients. Most of the patients were in the age group of 41–50 years followed by 31–40 years. Results: Sonoelastography shows good sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, and accuracy in identifying thyroid pathology. Conclusions: Sonoelastography is a new imaging modality which is helpful in characterization of thyroid nodule and shows significant accuracy in differentiating benign from malignant lesion.
