Background: Ultrasound (USG) can be used to diagnose thyroid nodules. The present study aimed to evaluate the role of USG in the diagnosis of thyroid nodules. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted in Department of Radio diagnosis, RMMCH. Study period was one year. 50 patients were selected based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Selected patients were explained study procedure and inform consent was obtained. All the patients were subjected to USG neck for the evaluation of type of thyroid nodules. Results: Thyroid nodule size increases in malignant compared to benign. In benign maximum cases were well defined margins. 28 showed solid echo structure. 21 in benign and 4 in malignant showed heteroechoic echogenisity. Conclusion: This study results conclude that ultrasound is more useful in the detection of type of thyroid nodule with size and other features.
