Reading ultrasound results

Can anyone help me read my ultrasound results more in depth. Results below:

CLINICAL DATA:  Hypothyroidism. Patient has a history of Hashimoto's.

TECHNIQUE: Sonographic imaging of the thyroid was performed.



The thyroid is normal in size. The right thyroid lobe measures 4.3 x 1.3 x 1.4
cm. The left thyroid lobe measures 4.1 x 0.8 x 1.5 cm. The thyroid isthmus is
normal in thickness, measuring 3 mm. There is mild diffuse heterogeneous
echogenicity throughout the thyroid. Doppler imaging demonstrates unremarkable
blood flow within the thyroid. No discrete thyroid nodules are identified.


Mild heterogeneous echogenicity of the thyroid, which may be secondary to
patient's history of thyroiditis. No evidence of acute thyroiditis or thyroid

It shows that you have had an inflammation  in the past (heterogeneous echotexture) which is not present now (normal blood flow)
