MRI of thyroid: The thyroid can be seen on an MRI provided that portion of the neck is included in the scan.

Could include: Will need to order dedicated views of thyroid, but certainly could be do concurrently. Ask your doctor. Am bothered by this: if you have confirmed MS (or do you?), why aren't you taking a specific medication for MS?
