Thyroid gland is butterfly shaped organ which consists of two cone lobes and belongs to the endocrine system. It lies in front of the neck below the adams apple. Thyroid disorders are some kind of abnormalities in thyroid gland which can give rise to nodul es like hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, goiter, benign and malignant etc. Ultrasound (US) is one among the hugely used modality to detect the thyroid disorders because it has some benefits over other techniques like non - invasiveness, low cost, free of ion izing radiations etc. This paper provides a concise overview about segmentation of thyroid nodules and importance of neural networks comparative to other techniques .
