Thyroid ultrasound is a quick, reliable, and painless examination using high-frequency sound waves. It is perfectly safe.
Thyroid ultrasound is used to detect thyroid nodules, cysts, changes in structure and size. Usually the test is requested in the case of thyroid malfunction, hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.
Ultrasound is also used to obtain a biopsy (a sample of tissue) for closer examination, if needed.
During the examination, some specialised jelly is applied to the skin on the area being examined. The jelly prevents air pockets from forming between the patient’s skin and the ultrasound transducer. This allows a higher resolution image to be displayed onto the computer screen.
The examination is performed by an ultrasound technician.
The exam takes from 15 to 30 min. Results are available immediately after scanning.
No special preparation is required for this examination.
