Sonography thyroid gland

Home Radiology Sonography Throat Thyroid

A thyroid sonography (also thyroid ultrasound) is a medical imaging procedure that uses sound waves to create images of the thyroid gland. It can be used to diagnose various conditions and diseases of the thyroid gland, such as cancer, goiter, and nodules. Sonography (ultrasound examination) is generally safe and does not use ionizing radiation, making it a preferred method.


You will need the following for the examination: a referral (with a detailed question or request), relevant medical records or previous findings, and a completed questionnaire.

The area will be cleared of any obstructive clothing, and the examination will be performed while lying on an examination table in the examination room. You will usually receive iodine-based contrast agent.

No contrast agent is administered.

Depending on the illness, the SVA (Social Insurance Institution) may cover a portion or the entire cost of the examination.

The thyroid gland is a small, hormone-active organ.

Despite its small size, diseases of the thyroid gland often lead to a variety of symptoms. They affect the activity of the metabolism, the cardiovascular system, and the gastrointestinal tract, but can also affect the nerves and psyche, causing discomfort.

Both functional disorders (hypothyroidism = underactivity, hyperthyroidism = overactivity) and tumor-like diseases are very common. However, early diagnosis and timely therapy open up a good prognosis for thyroid diseases (e.g. goiter, thyroiditis, Hashimoto’s disease, Graves’ disease, thyroid cancer).

In the case of abnormal findings, we ensure a clear and reliable diagnosis within the shortest possible time with the help of the latest technology and established cutting-edge medicine. We accompany you from suspicion to diagnosis and, if necessary, through therapy to aftercare.
