Thyroid ultrasonography is a type of ultrasound that employs sound waves to create images of the thyroid gland in the neck—typically used to look for any lumps or nodules near the neck.
The best way to learn about the shape and structure of nodules is with a thyroid ultrasound. Doctors may use it to distinguish cysts from solid nodules or to determine the presence of multiple nodules. It can also be used as a guide by doctors when performing a fine-needle aspiration biopsy.
Thyroid ultrasound is commonly used:
• To determine whether a neck lump is caused by the thyroid or another structure in the neck.
• To look for additional nodules in patients who have one or more on physical examination.
• Determine whether the thyroid nodule has grown significantly over time.
When a physical exam reveals any of the following findings, a thyroid ultrasound is usually performed to assess a thyroid nodule, which is a growth on your thyroid gland. A goitre is a swelling or irregularity of the thyroid.
You must lie face-up on a tilting or moveable test table. A pillow can be positioned behind the shoulders to extend the region scanned for a thyroid ultrasound test.
Leave any jewellery at home because this involves thorough examination of the neck section. You may be asked to put on a hospital gown.
Although this test is entirely risk-free and has no adverse effects, post-test care should include healthy diet prescribed by the doctor, and you can resume your daily activities.
