Ultrasonography-Based Thyroidal and Perithyroidal Anatomy and Its Clinical Significance.

Ha EJ, Baek JH, Lee JH - Korean J Radiol (2015)

Bottom Line: For a safe and effective US-guided procedure, knowledge of neck anatomy, particularly that of the nerves, vessels, and other critical structures, is essential.Therefore, the aim of this article was to elucidate US-based thyroidal and perithyroidal anatomy, as well as its clinical significance in the use of prevention techniques for complications during the US-guided procedures.Knowledge of these areas may be helpful for maximizing the efficacy and minimizing the complications of US-guided procedures for the thyroid and other neck lesions.

ABSTRACT
Ultrasonography (US)-guided procedures such as ethanol ablation, radiofrequency ablation, laser ablation, selective nerve block, and core needle biopsy have been widely applied in the diagnosis and management of thyroid and neck lesions. For a safe and effective US-guided procedure, knowledge of neck anatomy, particularly that of the nerves, vessels, and other critical structures, is essential. However, most previous reports evaluated neck anatomy based on cadavers, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging rather than US. Therefore, the aim of this article was to elucidate US-based thyroidal and perithyroidal anatomy, as well as its clinical significance in the use of prevention techniques for complications during the US-guided procedures. Knowledge of these areas may be helpful for maximizing the efficacy and minimizing the complications of US-guided procedures for the thyroid and other neck lesions.

Figure 16: Transverse and longitudinal ultrasonography images of TP.(A) Relationship with LC (arrowheads) and (B) successive features on longitudinal images easily differentiate TP (arrowheads) from calcified lymph node. AT = anterior tubercle, LC = longus capitis muscle, TP = transverse process

Mentions: The longus colli muscle and longus capitis muscle consist of the posterior part of the neck muscles (5960). The longus colli muscle is in front of the spine and is the anatomical landmark for the cervical sympathetic trunk that lies on the longus colli muscle (Fig. 15) (39404142). The longus capitis muscle arises by 4 tendinous slips from the anterior tubercles of the transverse processes of C3-6. This anatomical feature easily differentiates the anterior tubercle of the transverse process from the calcified lymph node (Fig. 16).
