The Study of the Thyroid Hormones Disturbance on Thyroid Morphology using Ultrasonography
Mohamed H. Albasher | Mona A. Mohamed
Abstract: Thyroid function is the production of thyroid hormones which are created from thymoglobulin protein. The aim of this study to study the size and texture of thyroid gland with disturbance of T3, T4, TSH using ultrasonography. A descriptive study 309 patient were enrolled in the study with disturbance of T3, T4, TSH, in period from April/2015 up to February/2015 for patient referred for ultrasonic clinic to examine thyroid gland. The machine used in the study are Aloka 200 CD and Sonoscape with high frequency 7 10 MHZ left and right lobes were measured and detect echogenicity and size. Ultrasound findings of this study revealed that most age group affected due to this disturbance (25 50) 76.2 %. The incidence of thyroid disease is more common in females 94.8 % to 5.2 % in males. The study revealed that the most endemic areas for thyroid diseases in Sudan are the west 40 %. Most cases of thyroid changes were associated with increased thyroid hormone level with either complex or hypo echogenic texture.
