Preface

Disorders of the thyroid and parathyroid glands are common and neck ultrasonography has stood the test of time and established itself as the primary imaging modality of not only the thyroid gland but also of the parathyroid glands and cervical lymph nodes. When clinically indicated, neck ultrasonography is invaluable and can be seen as an extension of the physical examination. It is performed in the office without any patient preparation and allows the physician to carry-out ultrasound-guided biopsies of anterior and lateral neck structures. Physicians who are not personally performing neck ultrasonography and ultrasound guided-procedures still need to be quite familiar with the ultrasound features of the normal and abnormal thyroid gland, parathyroid glands and cervical lymph nodes. This is particularly important as there is a wide variation in the standards of neck ultrasonography reporting.

The authors of this book are Endocrinologists with an interest in thyroid and parathyroid disorders, who have been performing neck ultrasonography and ultrasound-guided procedures of the neck for more than 15 years. When we set out to write this book, our aim was to provide a basic introduction to neck ultrasonography and to allow the reader to quickly search for relevant information about the ultrasound feature or condition in question. To aid with this task, we tried to include as many ultrasound images as possible and to limit the amount of text as we believe in the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”. This book would be a useful tool for endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, cytopathologists, ultrasonographers and other health care workers with an interest in thyroid and parathyroid disorders. We would like to thank our family and friends who supported us with the writing of this book and hope that you enjoy it!
