Thyroid Ultrasound Treatment at Accent Endocrinology

Accent’s Thyroid Center in Gainesville provides North Florida with state-of-the-art technology and world class care to diagnose and treat disorders of the thyroid

The average healthy thyroid gland is only the size (and shape) of two thumbs held together, but for being so small, it plays a significant role in your overall health and wellbeing.

Known by its characteristic butterfly shape, the thyroid is the largest of the body’s endocrine glands, and located at the lower-front of the neck. It is primarily responsible for regulating the body’s metabolism and converting food into energy.

Because of its small size, abnormalities in the thyroid can be difficult to find, so physicians use ultrasound to detect and treat endocrine disorders.

How Thyroid Ultrasound Works

A thyroid ultrasound is a safe and painless method of observing the body’s endocrine system. The patient lies down with their neck extended and gel is applied to the area to enable sound waves to pass through the skin. The physician moves a wand-like device, called a transducer, over the neck region. The transducer emits sound waves that provide detailed, real-time images of the thyroid—no radiation or side effects. The test essentially works the same as a fetal ultrasound, but for the endocrine system.

Treatment at Accent Endocrinology

In addition to using the latest ultrasound technology to diagnose thyroid disorders, Accent’s endocrinologists provide on-the-spot evaluation of your test results. Rather than rely on technicians to give a thyroid ultrasound, Dr. Werbel and her physicians test patients themselves, so they can immediately examine the results, discuss them with you, and begin treatment as soon as possible.

Thyroid Ultrasound - A lump or abnormal growth in the thyroid gland is called thyroid nodule. At Accent Endocrinology, we offer thyroid nodule ultrasound, a simple and painless technology, that uses harmless sound wave technology (no radiation exposure) to generate images of the thyroid and surrounding structures. Thyroid nodules and cysts are measured and detailed descriptions of their characteristics are recorded. For thyroid cancer patients, we perform a review of the surrounding lymph nodes to help determine if the cancer has spread to these lymph nodes. Our exams are performed by our thyroid specialists and endocrinologists. This allows immediate evaluation, interpretation, and discussion with the patient incorporating the patient's clinical situation.
