Ultrasound Doppler of the Liver
Abnormal liver function tests (LFTs) can be an indication of liver disease or other pathologies that require further investigation. Doppler ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging technique that can be used to assess the liver vasculatures, including the portal vein, hepatic vein, and hepatic artery. Doppler ultrasound can detect abnormalities in blood flow, such as obstruction or narrowing, which can be indicative of liver disease or other pathologies.Portal vein doppler assessment can help diagnose conditions such as portal hypertension, portal vein thrombosis, and cirrhosis. Hepatic vein doppler assessment can help diagnose conditions such as Budd-Chiari syndrome, hepatic venous congestion, and cirrhosis. Hepatic artery doppler assessment can help diagnose conditions such as hepatic artery stenosis or occlusion, which can lead to ischemic liver injury. At our website, we provide a link to a detailed article on doppler ultrasound assessment of the liver vasculatures. This article provides an in-depth explanation of the technique, its indications, and its limitations. 
Thyroid Nodule Ultrasound
Ultrasound is considered the primary diagnostic tool for assessing thyroid nodules. The British Thyroid Association, along with other medical societies, has established guidelines that assist in the characterization, follow-up, and management of thyroid nodules. These guidelines help identify suspicious features that may indicate a higher risk for cancer, such as irregular margins, microcalcifications, increased vascularity, and a taller-than-wide shape. It is important to adhere to these guidelines to ensure accurate diagnosis and appropriate management of thyroid nodules.For a better understanding of thyroid classifications using ultrasound, UKSONO has approved a link that can be accessed on our website. This link provides detailed information on the characteristics of thyroid nodules and the classification system used to assess them, as well as tips for performing an effective thyroid ultrasound examination. It is crucial to consult with a healthcare provider if you have any concerns or questions about your thyroid nodules.
