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!
