Is Thyroid Ultrasound The Same As Thyroid Ultrasonography?

Low power ultrasound is the scanning technology used to produce the image for diagnostic purposes. Outputting that image so that it can be viewed, either as hard copy or on a monitor, is ultrasonography (which is commonly the term used for the whole procedure).

However, high power ultrasound is also used as a treatment, for breaking down cystic matter, breaking up kidney stones and recently for some cancer treatments.

So I think you have been asked for a picture, but have been offered a procedure.
