Thyroid scintigraphy facilitates the detection of focal and/or global abnormalities of thyroid anatomy, correlation of anatomy with function, and detection of aberrant or metastatic functioning thyroid tissue or residual normal tissue after therapy.
Thyroid imaging is useful in, but not limited to:
Added value of correlative ultrasound in the assessment of thyroid disease.
We are also able to perform correlative ultrasound on the same day as a patients thyroid scinitscan. This often provides additional valuable information allowing optimal imaging assessment of both function and anatomy.
