Transvaginal Probe Application in the Visualization and Evaluation of a Retrosternal Thyroid Mass

Aneta Kecler-Pietrzyk, Pradeep Govender and Prof William Torreggiani

Ultrasound evaluation of the thyroid gland is relatively easy in most cases with excellent visualization of the gland with linear transducer allowing clear characterization of lesions as well as guidance for biopsy. However when retrosternal thyroid tissue extension is present, evaluation may be difficult. We report the simple use of widely available transvaginal probe in helping to visualize and evaluate the retrosternal thyroid tissue.
