Thyroid Ultrasound

We will perform a detailed scan to look at the size, shape and condition of the:

  • thyroid gland and the adjacent structures in the neck

Common examples for having this ultrasound scan are:

  • to determine if a lump in the neck is arising from the thyroid or an adjacent structure

  • to analyze the appearance of thyroid nodules and determine if they are the more common benign nodule or if the nodule has features that require a biopsy. 

  • to look for additional nodules in patients with one or more nodules felt on physical exam

  • to see if a thyroid nodule has substantially grown over time

We will provide a Radiologist report within 24 hours. 


Pre-scan preparation
Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. You may need to remove all clothing and jewelry in the area to be examined.
No other preparation is required.
