Thryroid Ultrasound Interpretation
I had recently gone for an ultrasound and needed an interpretation of this in lay mans terms.  

History: Patient had the raising question of a possible parathyroid enlargement on the left.  

Both lobes are heterogeneous with the right, 4.7x2x1.6cm and the left, 2.7x1.4x1.6cm.  There is no discrete nodule or calcification.  Again unidentified in the left superior is a 1.4x0.4x0.6cm hypo echoic mass.  Inferiorly is a probable lymph node that is of increased echogenicity fatty center.  In addition there is a 5 mm structure that is hypoechoic.  There is no evidence of adenopathy.  

Conclsuion:  The imaging remains questionable for a left superior parathryoid with probably lymph nodes inferiorly. .

Hi there!

The report describes a normal thyroid gland with an enlarged adjoining lymphnode below the thyroid and possible enlargement of the left superior parathyroid gland.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
