Abstract

Thyroid ultrasonography has established itself as a popular and useful tool in the evaluation and management of thyroid disorders, both malignant and benign. Although its use has traditionally been the domain of radiologists, surgeons and endocrinologists are increasingly integrating this technology into their daily clinical and operative practice. This article provides an overview of the relevant uses and indications for ultrasound in various thyroid diseases, describes characteristic ultrasound findings in these diseases, and reviews the relevant literature and guidelines concerning its uses.
