In brief: Sonar images

Ultrasound uses the variation in the 2 dimensional images produced by scanning the thyroid like a fisherman uses sonar to find a school of fish under his boat.
Enough thyroid us's have been done to develop pictures of how big each part of the gland should be at a given age in a given condition.
