Ultrasound of the neck
Ultrasound diagnostics or ultrasonography (US) is a radiological imaging method which uses ultrasonic high-frequency waves to see the inside structures of the body. Ultrasound is used to see changes in the organs and tissues, as well as discovering abnormal formations such as tumors.
By doing the US procedures, we do not use ionizing radiation.
We analyze palpable masses on the neck, salivary glands, thyroid gland and lymph nodes in the neck.
Radiologist – a specialist in radiology educated for doing US and for interpreting it, will interpret the scan and will write a radiological report. If necessary, the radiologist will discuss the report with the physician that indicated the procedure.
