This coronal (frontal) CT reconstruction of the neck shows the thyroid gland towards the bottom of the image. The thyroid consists of a right lobe and a left lobe which lie on either side of the trachea (black ovoid structure). There is a large central area of lower density (slightly darker) within the right lobe (towards your left) of the thyroid gland which represents a nodule. These nodules can be asymptomatic or can cause hyperthyroidism. Thyroid nodules can be benign or malignant (cancer).
