Ultrasound Head and Neck-Thyroid
An ultrasound head-neck-thyroid test is a medical imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images of the structures in the head, neck, and thyroid gland.
An ultrasound head-neck-thyroid test can help diagnose a variety of conditions, including:
Thyroid nodules or tumors: These are abnormal growths in the thyroid gland that can be benign or cancerous.
Enlarged thyroid gland: Also known as goiter, an enlarged thyroid gland can be caused by a variety of conditions, including iodine deficiency, inflammation, and tumors.
Lymph node enlargement: Swollen lymph nodes in the head and neck can be a sign of infection or cancer.
Salivary gland problems: An ultrasound can help diagnose salivary gland stones, infections, and tumors.
Blood vessel problems: An ultrasound can evaluate the blood vessels in the head and neck to detect blockages, aneurysms, or other abnormalities.
Overall, an ultrasound head-neck thyroid test is a safe and non-invasive way to diagnose and monitor conditions affecting the structures in the head, neck, and thyroid gland.
