Ultrasound images of retrosternal goiter

Xray images show a large rounded opacity in the upper mediastinum.

Ultrasound images of the thyroid show a huge gland, with inhomogenous appearance and calcification, extending to the retrosternal region. The thyroid measures more than 5 x 8 cms. These images by Mr. Shlomo Gobi of Israel were taken using the endocavity probe to better visualize the retrosternal extension of the thyroid goiter. Xray images show the goiter in the retrosternal region. You can view more such intersting ultrasound images of thyroid diseases at:
