Sonogram (Definition)

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

Elevated TSH. Thyroid ultrasound results: "no significant enlargement but heterogeneous echotexture and small multinodular appearance." Please help?

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

What does hypo mean on thyroid ultrasound?

What does hypo mean on thyroid ultrasound?

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 more

Sound waves not xray: A thyroid ultrasound uses sound waves rather than x rays to take a picture of the thyroid gland, blood vessels and lymph nodes in the neck. It is an excellent test to distinguish if a thyroid "nodule" is solid or fluid-filled ( a cyst). ...Read more
