Further Information

Scan Procedure

A Thyroid Ultrasound Scan uses sound waves to create images of the thyroid gland. The sonographer applies a gel to the neck area and moves a handheld device, called a transducer, over it. The transducer emits sound waves that bounce back to create images of the thyroid gland.

Preparation for the Scan

No specific preparation is required for a Thyroid Ultrasound Scan. However, it is recommended to wear loose-fitting and low-cut clothing for easy access to the neck area. Removal of any necklaces or jewelry around the neck may be required.

What to Expect on the Day

A Thyroid Ultrasound Scan typically ranges from 30 - 60 minutes in duration*4*. The procedure is painless, but you may feel slight pressure as the transducer is moved over the neck area.

After the Scan

There are no specific post-scan instructions for a Thyroid Ultrasound Scan. The results are usually available within a few days and will be communicated by your healthcare provider.

Alternative Imaging Options

Other imaging options for evaluating the thyroid gland include CT scans, MRI scans, and nuclear medicine scans such as a thyroid uptake and scan. The choice of imaging modality depends on the symptoms and the consultant's decision.
