Neck ultrasound: diagnosing the thyroid and lymph nodes.
Ultrasound examination of the neck is common, because there are critical structures located in the neck, including the thyroid gland and the lymph nodes. Generally, a “neck ultrasound” will be ordered by your medical provider to specifically examine one of these structures for a suspected problem or symptoms.
Lymph node ultrasound: empowering your doctor’s accurate diagnosis.
The body’s lymphatic system includes clusters of small, soft structures — lymph nodes — that make immune cells, filter the lymphatic fluid and remove foreign material. When the lymph nodes make more white blood cells to fight infection, they can swell. At AFS, we examine the neck to find and measure abnormal lymph nodes to help doctors understand the symptoms their patients are experiencing.
Thyroid ultrasound: experience and expertise doctors trust.
Medical providers may order a thyroid ultrasound if they detect a lump or enlargement. Thyroid nodules are very common, especially for people over age 50, and they can indicate cancer. Therefore it’s important to evaluate them. At AFS, our sonographers look for nodules and assess the gland’s size, shape, texture and blood flow.
For reliable ultrasound studies of the neck, trust experience.
When it comes to neck ultrasound, AFS’ sonographers are specialized and highly experienced. They also use state-of-the-art technology for maximum precision, detail and diagnostic accuracy.
