Thyroid Gland Ultrasound Scan

If your thyroid gland is swollen, a thyroid ultrasound scan can help to identify the root cause. Swelling of the thyroid is known as a goitre, and it can arise for several different reasons. Whether we are looking at diagnosing suspected thyroid disease or thyroid nodules, our ultrasound technician will be able to carry out the ultrasound scanning you need.

Sometimes a goitre will disappear on its own, but in other cases, treatment is required. A goitre ultrasound scan will enable you to make an informed decision about your thyroid health. Our ultrasound thyroid scan is safe and painless.

A professional sonographer will carry out the ultrasound examination; we will look at the thyroid function and your lymph nodes and evaluate lumps found.

Should we feel your need a follow up physical exams such as a thyroid function test or fine-needle aspiration biopsy, you will need to take our thyroid ultrasound imaging results to your doctor or GP practice.

Medical imaging can show a range of thyroid problems, but further diagnosis may be required after a physical examination

What causes a goitre?

A goitre is a swelling of the thyroid gland that creates a lump at the front of your neck. They are more common in women than in men, and the older you are, the more likely you are to develop one.

Our ultrasound scan and ultrasound examination use sound waves to highlight this lump on ultrasound images.

Possible causes of goitre and thyroid problems include:

  • An overactive, underactive or inflamed thyroid gland
  • Hormone changes – especially during puberty, pregnancy or menopause
  • A diet that’s too low in iodine
  • Certain medications, such as lithium
  • Multiple nodules are swollen
  • Fluid-filled lymph nodes

Why book a thyroid scan?

Our ultrasound thyroid scan is an excellent way to identify the cause if you have developed a goitre. With a thyroid ultrasound scan, you can get a clear image using high-frequency sound waves inside the body. All we will need you to do is come into the examination room; the non-invasive thyroid ultrasound scan will create images and a clear picture of what is going on inside of the body.

Once you have the results of your goitre scan, you can make a more informed decision about treatment (if any is needed at all). Depending on what our ultrasound screen shows us, we may recommend speaking to your GP or arranging a thin needle aspiration as a way to confirm any potential medical issues.

This would be a further procedure that would need to be carried out at the hospital or your doctors.

I booked my appointment (Growth Scan) with the Northampton unit, however, the Ultrasound Plus team called me the day before saying that they would have to rebook it to a different unit. Due to date availability, we chose to go to the Birmingham unit. The clinic is very small and the team is quite nice. I must say that it was a bit rushed compared to other private scans that I've had before, so I'm not sure if I was squeezed in between appointments or if it is usually like this. Since the assessments were done as requested when booking, I must say that overall it was a nice experience.
