More abnormal thyroid sonography templates

1) Multinodular goiter:
Same as normal thyroid sonography report with the added paragraphs as below:

Both lobes show multiple small and large, echogenic nodules and few cystic lesions  of varying sizes from 0.5 to 1 cms.
Mild augmentation of vascularity is present, especially around the nodules.
A large (macro) calcific lesions is present in right lobe.
Diffuse enlargement of thyroid is present.
Findings suggest Multinodular goiter.

2) For parathyroid adenoma:
A hypoechoic nodule (0.6 cms.) is seen posterior to the lower pole of right lobe.
? parathyroid adenoma.

3) Thyroglossal duct cyst:
There is a complex mass (1.0 x 0.9 x 0.5 cms.) in the midline in submandibular region.
It shows both solid and cystic areas also.
No calcification is present. The lesion is very vascular.
  • Findings suggest infected thyroglossal duct cyst.
4) Another report of thyroglossal duct cyst:
There is a complex mass (2.5 x 1.7 x 1.8 cms.) just to the left of the left of midline (at the level of thyroid cartilage).
It shows both (2 in number) solid, hyperechoic, rounded areas with a cystic area also seen.
No calcification is present. The lesion is poorly vascular.
Findings suggest thyroglossal duct cyst.
5) Hyperthyroidism:
Marked increase in vascularity of thyroid is present.
