Dark spots on thryoid ultrasound?

I had a thyroid ultrasound done today and I'm just curious if anyone knows what all they measure and what it means. I understand they assess its overall size, but I did notice the technician measuring several, round, lsort of bean-sized, dark black spots. she probably took about 30 images all told. I've had surgery on my thryroid once, they removed a nodule on the right side, but I never saw the ultrasound images because they did the fna at the same time. I'm just wondering if there's normally black areas they measure or if I've got some little nodules again. my doctor says my thyroid levels are all normal, but I've been having problems with appetite, bradycardia, sleeping etc lately.
any info would be appreciated.. I'm very curious

Re: Dark spots on thryoid ultrasound?

I think ultrasounds take a great deal of training to work with, and you need to be a doctor to read the images accurately and with any meaning.

I'm sure you are anxious, but it's better to wait for the doctor to explain the results than to second guess.
