What Does Color Mean In Thyroid Doppler Ultrasounds
Doppler: Doppler is to look at blood flow, thyroid study usually just need regular ultrasound
If my tsh low, t3 (liothyronine) and t4 is normal, is it hypo or hyper thyroidism? Should I take iodine? Ultra sound is normal, without pathology.
Hypothyroid: The answer to this question depends on what your exact levels are and what type of symptoms you have. "Subclinical Hypothyroidsim" sometimes presents in the manner you describe.
Really not much: By convention the red usually means blood flow toward the ultrasound transducer and blue is flow away.
See detailed answer: Psv = peak systolic velocity (i.e. Speed of blood flow); elevated psv can indicate narrowing ica/cca ratio is another way of assessing narrowing - would need to see actual numbers my 2 cents...See a vascular surgeon.See 1 more doctor answer
Doppler US showed cystic changes (irregular shape) in thyroid with swollen reactive nodes unilateral. What does this mean!?
Many things: You may have a multi modular goiter which is a benign condition that sometimes may require surgery. This could also be thyroiditis which is also benign. It is hard without and exam but likely this can be observed and followed with ultrasound if no other symptoms. Www. Drlugo. ComSee 2 more doctor answers
Today I got a doppler ultrasound for a lump in my belly button and orange color showed up. Is orange mean something is wrong?
Without: Any technical context, it could mean anything or nothing. There is simply not enough information to render an opinion in either directIon. It is tempting to look at the screen, but to a layman' s eye lots of innocuous findings and technical artifacts could look ominous on ultrasound. Talk to your doc about the results.
Nonspecific: The report should be more informative. Is there a mass? Enlarged lymph nodes? What you describe essentially gives no information.
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.
Had an ultrasound on my thyroid, report says I have excess thyroid tissue behind each lobe. What exactly does this mean? Was not there 6 months ago.
Thyromegaly?: Sounds like the report is describing benign generalized thyroid gland enlargement called thyromegaly (goiter). There are many causes of this and your doctor can help narrow down the possibilities.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
My dr felt by palpation an approx 2cm nodule on my thyroid, but it was not detected on ultrasound, does that mean there is nothing there?
Yes: The ultrasound would have seen a 2 cm thyroid mass if done correctly.
Have a thyroid nodgule. Had a ultrasound done they are a little worried now have to have further testing a hospital. What does that mean?
What does it mean if your ultrasound reports prominent vascularity within the mass without microcalification? In regards to my thyroid? Thank you
Thyroid mass: It means your throid mass is having blodd vessel supply. As ultrasound shows thyroid mass you need to undergo biopsy to get definitive diagnosis. Follow up with your physician.
Blood flow: Color on your thyroid ultrasound means that color doppler was applied and blood flow was detected. It is generally normal unless there is too much color, which would have been mentioned in the report.
Had physical today. Dr said thyroid is enlarged. Did blood work and is scheduling ultrasound. What could it being enlarged mean?
I had ultrasound on thyroid and results was found 7mm physio something nodule on right thyroid. What could that's be ot mean?
Thyroid nodule: It means you need to discuss with your Dr.
Already taking levothyroxine for 11yrs in jan ajusted meds but now thyroid is thick with nodules. So waiting on ultrasound. What does this mean?
My ultrasound for the neck says my thyroid gland is of normal size but I have mild, diffuse non-specific parenchymal disease. What does that mean?
Thyroid ultrasound: It means you have something going on in the thyroid gland tissue (parenchyma). So discuss with the Drs who ordered it. At your age first guess would be hyperactive thyroid.
Orange size?: I presume you do not mean color but size. The thyroid is not a very large gland to begin with. If it is a cyst then a colloid cyst is common. There are other cysts much less common. If solid then there are many different causes. Goiter as well as hyper plastic nodules look like that. Much more needs to be said about those findings. At that size, talk to your doctor for more information and next
May need follow up: The data says that without a dominant mass, nodules less than 2.5 cm are rarely of concern. The thyroid frequently forms nodules, most of which are of no concern. But depending on the size and imaging characteristics, as well as your risk factors, your doctor may need to reassess at later date. If your doctor is not worried, than you should not be either!
