Thyroid and Small Parts Ultrasound

Ultrasound of the thyroid uses high-frequency sound waves to generate pictures of the thyroid gland and the surrounding neck tissue. It’s common for patchy areas or nodules to develop on the thyroid. Ultrasound images allow your doctor to evaluate these lumps or nodules to determine if they are benign (non-cancerous), or if they seem more suspicious and may require an Ultrasound-Guided-Biopsy to be certain.
