Discovering any kind of changes of the thyroid gland is made easy by using tissue ultrasound. The early detection and the specific judging of tissue changes is professional and non-invasive.
The ultrasound examination of the muscles, tendons and soft tissue and of the whole body requires much experience of the physician. However, it is also very well suited to confirm a suspected diagnosis. Further, it often allows the differentiation between a benign and a malignant tumour. It may also provide valuable information for the orthopaedic diagnostics of ligaments and muscles.
