Abstract
Thyroid gland is a very unique gland in the body. It is the only gland in the body which depends on the outside source for iodine directly. It has a very rich blood supply which can be compared with that of the kidneys and also, it’s the only gland in the body which has the capacity to produce, store and exclude its products when the body needs the products. So, its regulation is remarkable. Its very superficially placed and can be easily studies using high frequency probes. There have been studies where a simple trans vaginal probe has been successfully used to study the gland. The main reason being that its very superficially placed and thus high frequency probes can be used successfully to study such structures accurately. This study puts in an effort to study the role of USG in thyroid diseases.
