RT Lobe 4.4cm long x 1.5cm tv x 1.4cm ap, Left 4.5cm long x 1.4cm tv x 1.2 cm ap. Entire thyroid gland has heterogeneous appearance. No nodules demonstrated.
The heterogeneous appearance of the thyroid gland is similar to the comparison ultrasound 3/2009.
TSH: 2.4, T4 9.3, FT4 1.09, Thyperoxidase AB 28.1, Thyroglobulin AB 40.7
Any clues for me? I know the bloodwork is within normal limits.
The heterogeneity is most commonly due to hashimoto's but in this case the AB's appear normal. Sometimes the ultrasound changes come before lab changes - so perhaps this is early hashimoto's or you had another type of thyroid inflammation (which is usually transient, ie thyroiditis)
Why did you have the ultrasound in 3/09 then repeated recently? the size is normal and there are no nodules.......
