Caption: Thyroiditis. Coloured ultrasound scan of a thyroid gland with thyroiditis. This is an inflammatory condition, where the thyroid becomes enlarged. It may be associated with an underactive thyroid gland or hypothyroidism. Echogenic bands (red) are seen on the ultrasound where fibrous tissue is present. The thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck. Ultrasound is a diagnostic technique that sends high-frequency sound waves into the body via a transducer. The returning echoes are recorded and used to build an image of an internal structure.
