Thyroid scintigrams

Thyroid disease is diagnosed quite frequently. It has an impact on many organs and a range of bodily functions, and so results – to some extent – in very different symptoms and complaints. For this reason, diseases of the thyroid gland and their outcomes are diagnosed and treated by doctors from a number of different specialist disciplines.

Examination Techniques

In addition to inspection and palpation of the neck, the following examinations are available:

Ultrasound of the thyroid gland and neck tissues
Fine-needle puncture  
- Additional nuclear medical examinations in the context of tumour diagnosis
PET-CT in the context of tumour diagnosis

Additional radiological examinations: 
X-ray of the trachea
Computed tomography
Magnetic resonance tomography
