What Does A Hyperechoic Foci In Nodule Mean
Thyroid US results: It is hard to interpret a thyroid ultrasound, especially online. Your profile says "hypothyroid and raised antibodies". This could mean Hashimotos, and the US is consistent with that. A 12 mm nodules is small, and could be consistent with the scarring in a Hashimotos gland, but this requires review by an Endocrinologist. ...Read more
U/s thyroid shows homogeneous parenchyma on left and right no mass or nodule what does this mean? So what is homogeneous parenchyma?
Good!: Homogeneous parenchyma is just a fancy way for the person reading the report to say the thyroid appears to be similar in texture and color throughout the entire thyroid. This is a good thing as it implies a uniform thyroid without areas of irregularity or inflammation and most people reading these reports will tend to err on the side of caution & at least say there is some irregularity. Good Luck! ...Read more

What does multiple hypoechoic focus nodules mean on my thyroid? What is parenchymal inhomogeneity?
Varying appearance: inhomogeneous means areas of different echogenicity or density rather than homogeneous where entire gland has same density. Hypoechoic means areas with decreased density or less echoes which often are cystic. As long as any nodular areas are not larger than 1 cm in diameter they usually do not require biopsy. ...Read more
Possible thyroiditis: The normal thyroid has a uniform rather echogenic echo texture. If the echo texture is lower and heterogeneous, thyroiditis is possible. There are several forms, most often autoimmune. This can cause either increased or decreased thyroid hormone production. You should discuss thyroid blood tests with your doctor. Tsh test can be helpful. Any suspicious nodules should be sampled as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Heterogeneous: Heterogeneous myometrium means that the texture of the myometrium is not the same across the length of it. It is probably OK if no discrete lesion is seen. If there are symptoms that cannot be explained by it, it may be reasonable to have a follow up ultrasound in 3 months to see if there has been a change in the appearance. ...Read more

Thyroid ultrasound - entire right lobe is hetergeneous. hyperechoic nodule measuring 5mm. left lobe is diffusely inhomogeneous. what does this mean?
Thyroid Ultrasound: I am a proponent of following up with the doctor who ordered your study to get an interpretation. My reasoning is one, they know why it was ordered, they know your clinical story and two they both have access to the radiologist who read it to discuss it and that little thing at the bottom of the report which says clinical impression. ...Read more
