Normal overall thyroid size. These are small nodules that can be ltypically followed over time (not sure how the "kidney" comment got in there (must be a typo)!).  Usually we would recheck ultrasound in one year and consider TPO antibody testing to see if hashimoto's is the "coarsened echopattern".
