sonography of the thyroid and abdomnal organs
SONOGRAPHY OF THE THYROID:
In this study, both thyroid lobes are represented and calculated size and volume (women up to 18 ml in men up to 25 ml).
The structure of the thyroid is under investigation. Nodes or other structural changes can be recognized. In addition, various abnormal changes can be detected and controlled to some extent in their course.
These include, for example:
- Goiter (goiter): an enlargement of the entire thyroid gland or of individual parts of this organ. There are various causes for such enlargement.
- Cysts: a kind of liquid-filled vesicles with one or more chambers.
- Node: growths within the thyroid gland.
The examination usually takes a few minutes and is done while lying down. Patient preparation is not necessary.
