Ultrasound Of Thyroid Shows
Thyroid ultrasound showed heterogenous echogenicity hypervascular thyroid. Thyroid labs normal. Any thoughts on what this is?
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Thyroid ultrasound shows heterogenous hypervascular echogenicity. No nodules. Thyroid labs were normal. Any ideas on what this is?
What thyoid labs?: There are many thyroid labs and most docs do not check enough of them? This ultrasound is consistent with grave's disease and thyroiditis. With grave's standard thyroid tests would usually be abnormal but might look ok with thyroiditis. Please make sure anti-thyroid antibodies (anti-tpo and anti-thyroglobulin) have been checked, as well as free t3 (liothyronine) and reverse t3 (liothyronine). ...Read more
Recent thyroid ultrasound with results of hyperechoic nodule at the left lower thyroid, and heterogeneous echotexture. What happens next?
My thyroid is underactive. My ultrasound showed diffusely heterogeneous echo pattern, diffusely heterogeneous hypervascular thyroid gland, no thyroid enlargement, no evidence of focal abnormality, no evidence of cyst, mass or calcification. I have been pu
My wife had a thyroid ultrasound and showed heterogenous echogenicity, hypervascular thyroid gland.No masses or nodules. Any thoughts on what this is?
Could be Hashimoto's: Is the gland normal is size or enlarged? If normal-sized, could be hashimoto's. If enlarged it could be grave's disease, both of which are autoimmune diseases. She should find out if she's hypo- or hyperthyroid and have additional testing to see if she has hashimoto's. ...Read more
Different no better: A thyroid nuclear uptake and scan is a functional test of your thyroid. It is useful in differentiating causes of thyrotoxicosis (excessive amounts of thyroid hormones in the body). A thyroid ultrasound is better to assess the anatomy of the thyroid gland and for guidance if biopsy is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had an ultrasound scan: The thyroid gland is severly and diffusely heterogeneous. Moderate hypervascularity. No focal or measurable thyroid nodule.
Many possibilities: An enlarged thyroid (goiter) has many causes and possible treatments. Is it causing hyper/hypothyroidism (i.e. Graves disease, toxic goiter)? Check tsh, ft4. Maybe anti-tpo. Is the goiter nodular or smooth? This may require an ultrasound, with biopsy of any suspicious nodules. Is it really big and impair your swallowing/breathing? Then maybe surgery. See your endocrinologist. ...Read more
Thyroid found to be slightly heterogeneous on ultrasound. Isoechoic nodule measuring 7mm mid left lobe. Fam history of thyroid cancer. Concerning?
Not concerning.: Isoechoic thyroid nodules are generally not concerning especially when they are less than 1.5 cm and if they don't have suspicious features like microcalcifications and increased internal vascularity. I recommend repeat thyroid US in 1 year. Make sure you have got your TSH and Free T4 checked. ...Read more
What is this slight heterogeneity to echo texture of thyroid parenchtma but no nodules detected. Thyroid ultrasound done 1-8-15?
Thyroid ultrasound show mild diffused parenchymal hyper vasuclarity.3mm hyperechoic nodule in the lateral aspect in the left lobe thyroid normal > tsh?
Possibly thyroiditis: Hypervascularity is a typical finding in people with underlying autoimmune thyroiditis (hashimoto's or graves disease). The 3 mm nodule is likely of no significance and can be watched. You need to know your TSH level. Getting thyroid antibodies (thyroid peroxidase, thyroglobulin antibodies) would be helpful in making a diagnosis. ...Read more
My liver ultrasound shows normal size and contour with coarsened, hyperechoic and heterogeneous echotexture without obscuration of the portal triads. ?
That is: a nonspecific description and there are a number of inflammatory and infiltrative processes that could cause that appearance. However, in the vast majority of cases in otherwise healthy individuals, it is due to benign fatty infiltration. ...Read more
Ct showed heterogeneous density thyroid, ultrasound showed nothing , waiting on bloods how can that be ?
For their eyes only.: The heterogeneity of the mass may be such that it "confused" the ultrasound beams and they showed a bunch of shadows that were hard to interpret, while the CT may have shown more definition, being based on x-rays and a computer to compile the data.Of course, it's also all in the eye of the beholder and it sometimes seems like "magic" how some ultrasounds are interpreted (some CTs too, by the way!) ...Read more
I had an ultrasound of my thyroid that states thyroid has multiple subcentimeter nodules but is homogeneous in echotexture with no mass, nodule, or other abnormality, Hypoechoic nodule at the lower pole on right 3x3x3mm, cystic nodule in the interpol?
See Specialist: I would take the results and follow up with Endocrinology or a Ear Nose and Throat specialist Should also have complete Thyroid labs done. Need more information about your medical history, meds, and other family history you have. Continue to follow up and you will get your situation resolved and need not worry. ...Read more
I have 3 thyroid nodules. Measuring .9-1.5. Thyroid bloodwork is normal. Hyperechoic hetergenous is what ultra sound shows. Help!! ?
Thyroid nodules: The vast majority of thyroid nodules are benign. Mutlinodular disease (goiter) is common. The larger the nodule the more worrisome they are. Ask your doctor how large a nodule must be before considering an FNA (fine needle aspiration). Most of these are handled by radiologists,endocrinologist as well as ENT's (ears, node & throat) specialists. Most likely benign but see your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A 0.3 x 0.5 x 0.3 CM hypoechoic cystic nodule with punctate internal echo is noted in the lower pole of the right lobe of the thyroid
Small nodule: Often cystic thyroid nodules can have denser regions called "punctate foci". If the nodule is not cystic those can also be microcalcifications, a finding that increases the risk of thyroid cancer. The key though is that the nodule is very small and therefore requires monitoring only, no matter what its nature may be. ...Read more
Explanation: All tests , including US, required clinical correlation. It means that Doctor, who ordered your test and know your clinical presentation can give you explanation of this finding. It may be benign accidentally finding. ...Read more
Thyroid US- heterogenous thyroid parenchyma with hypervascularity, suggestive of underlying parenchymal disease, no discrete thyroid nodule. Meaning?
Thyroiditis?: Need correlation with thyroid function tests. Why did you have the ultrasound? Your doctor is the one to put this all together for you. ...Read more
