Ultrasound guided thyroid biopsy is used to extract a small tissue sample from the thyroid gland for examination. Abnormalities on the thyroid gland can be detected by medical imaging, however, it’s not always possible to tell if an abnormality is benign (non-cancerous) or cancerous. An ultrasound-guided thyroid biopsy allows radiologists to remove a small tissue sample from the suspicious area on the thyroid gland.
