Ultrasound examination of lymph nodes in London is performed by a specialist radiologist.
Ultrasonography of lymph nodes is the best test that allows you to assess their appearance, size, shape and relationship with the surrounding tissues. The most common reason for ordering an ultrasound scan of lymph nodes is their enlargement, pain, or skin changes in the area of the lymph node. The most common cause of lymphadenopathy is inflammation where the nodes are located. The most dangerous causes of enlarged nodes are tumors and neoplasms, caused by diseases such as Hodgkin’s disease and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or metastasis to the lymph nodes.
Ultrasound examination of the lymph nodes can improve the precision and quality of diagnosis. A doctor’s palpation is one of the basic examinations of the lymph nodes, which allows you to feel for lumps and swollen lymph nodes. However, unlike the examination of lymph nodes with ultrasound and ultrasound, palpation can only detect superficial changes and is based on the physician’s perception, so it is highly subjective. Ultrasound examination of the lymph nodes is more accurate because it assesses their morphology, which allows for a more accurate diagnosis. A frequent indication for ultrasound examination of lymph nodes is also their monitoring during treatment or the assessment of the resolution of changes after the end of therapy.
