At-Home Thyroid Ultrasound Testing

The word ‘ultrasound’ is commonly associated with pregnancy. Whilst this is true, many people don’t realise that ultrasounds aren’t exclusively for expecting mothers, and are actually a popular and effective way to detect and monitor thyroid health conditions in men, women, and children.

COVID-19 remains a concern for many when it comes to visiting a clinic for tests. Due to this, at-home ultrasounds are becoming increasingly more popular. Find out more about VisitHealth's extensive ultrasound scans here!

What is an Ultrasound?

Ultrasounds create images of internal bodily structures by emitting high-frequency vibrations. In the simplest terms, ultrasounds allow doctors, nurses, and medics to see what's happening inside your body. This can help to highlight any internal abnormalities that may need medical treatment.
