    Does Ultra Sound detect thyroiditis?

    It is obvious I have some swelling on the left side of my thyroid. And, I am supposed to go for an ultra sound. Will thyroiditis show on an ultra sound? Do goiters appear different than thyroiditis? I really don't want to know or go through this, but the swelling is not going away.
    I just started HRT and I think the synthroid needs to be adjusted.

    My Endo & Ent both said that thyroiditis will affect the US. I believe that a 1-131 uptake scan is necessary to confirm thyroidits. I had a scan with my first bout with thyroiditis & the Dr. needed to know that I didn't have hyperthyroidism. Fam
