Overview

In USG – Neck, sound waves are used to diagnose issues with the carotid arteries, lymph nodes, or the thyroid gland in the neck.

What Is USG – Neck?

The USG – Neck is a procedure used to determine any abnormalities in the tissues of the neck. Instead of radiation like an X-ray, this process uses sound waves.

The USG – Neck procedure can reveal any blockages in the carotid arteries, detect whether there is a lump that requires further biopsy, or the extent of lymphoma. It can also determine the growth of thyroid and help in planning out a new treatment.

A USG – Neck is recommended to someone with a lump in their neck, severe pain, high blood pressure, or someone at risk of a stroke.

How is USG – Neck Performed?

The USG – Neck test is performed as follows:

  • The patient is asked to lie on the back on a table.
  • A clear gel is applied over their neck area.
  • The sonographer rubs a transducer on the area and takes images.

The procedure is short and takes 15-20 minutes to finish.
