annote      = { It is shown that inflamed and normal thyroid tissue can be
    differentiated by texture analysis of B-mode sonographic images.
    Classification success rate of 100 perc. has been achieved in
    differentiating between an ultrasound image of healthy thyroid
    gland and an image of gland with chronic inflammation.  The
    relation between image features and serological markers of thyroid
    autoimmunity has also been analyzed. A significant correlation
    between serum levels of thyroid antibodies and texture features
    was found. These findings suggest the possibility of using
    sonographic quantitative indicators not only for classification
    but also as predictors of thyroid antibodies in patient's blood. },
