Homogeneous Echotexture Bilaterally Found In Thyroid Ultrasound
Thyroid antibodies blood- 10 000
Thyroid ultrasound- right and left lobe gland slightly coarse in echo texture.few tiny colloid cysts bilateral. Right lobe 18x14x40mm. Left lobe 16x15x53mm.
The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more
What does "the background glandular echotexture is heterogeneous with hypervascularity" mean in a thyroid ultrasound?
Recent thyroid ultrasound with results of hyperechoic nodule at the left lower thyroid, and heterogeneous echotexture. What happens next?
I had a thyroid ultrasound that found a circumscribed solid heterogeneous largely isoechoic nodule with cystic mild internal color flow 26x16x19?
Elevated TSH. Thyroid ultrasound results: "no significant enlargement but heterogeneous echotexture and small multinodular appearance." Please help?
Recommend thyroid hormone therapy and endocrine consult: Elevation in the TSH suggests a diagnosis of primary hypothyroidism. A free T4 level needs to be obtained. The ultrasound changes might be consistent with an underlying autoimmune thyroiditis such as Hashimoto's. I would recommend evaluation by an endocrinologist and initiation of thyroid hormone therapy if indicated. ...Read more
Fewer echoes on US: Hypoechoic describes the appearance of a nodule on ultrasound (us). It refers to a nodule that reflects back fewer sound waves compared to the normal thyroid tissue around it. While most thyroid cancers are hypoechoic, most hypoechoic nodules are not cancers. But a hypoechoic nodule may have a slightly higher risk of being a cancer than other nodules. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anatomy of thyroid: The ultrasound is a technique using sound waves to look inside the body. The thyroid ultrasound exam specifically measure the thyroid gland size (to assess for enlargement or shrinkage), the thyroid texture (for autoimmune or inflammatory diseases that cause heterogeneity), presence of lumps (nodules that may be benign or cancerous), and the amount of blood flow (increase in certain conditions). ...Read more
