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
Maybe: Hashimoto's disease is auto immune thyroiditis. it is diagnosed clinically and by thyroid auto antibodies such as antithyroglobulin antibodies and antithythroid microsomal antibodies. It may be inferred on a ultrasound. Hyperthyroidism is diagnosed clinically, by lab. and by a 24 hour RAI23 uptake and scan. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Thyroid cancer: Hello. Unfortunately cancer of the thyroid will not show up on an ultrasound. A nodule or a growth in the thyroid can be seen and identified. A tissue or needle biopsy is needed to examine the cells for cancer. An excisional biopsy if needed will provide the pathologist the entire gland which then will be examined and a diagnosis rendered. ...Read more
My thyroid ultrasound shows diminished size of the thyroid gland. Its 4.5 mm but perfect in shape. My tests results were : TSH 2.70 ft3 2.84 ft4 11.1 ?
Normal function: Your thyroid function tests are within normal limits. Size of the gland, unless abnormally enlarged, is not an issue. ...Read more
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

What does "the axial diameter of the adjacent lymph nodes is 6mm or less" mean on a thyroid ultrasound?
Normal lymph node: Normal lymph nodes in the neck are 10 mm or less in axial diameter. We would expect to find lymph nodes this size under normal circumstances. ...Read more
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
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. ...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
Talk to your doctor: It's best to talk to the doctor that ordered the ultrasound. Only he/she knows your history and can put the results in context with your situation. ...Read more
Pretty good: The thyroid ultrasound does not directly tell you if you have cancer. The ultrasound identifies suspicious areas of the thyroid. Then, if the areas are suspicious enough, you may undergo a biopsy where a needle is placed into the thyroid area and samples are examined under a microscope to see if you have thyroid cancer or not. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
