Ok, so I know a ultrasound isn’t actually an x-ray (it isn’t, right?), but that’s the closest thing I could come up with. Did you know that people other than pregnant ladies get ultrasounds? I didn’t until the doctor told me (about six years ago) that I needed one on my thyroid. Crazy, right?
So yeah, I’ve had an ultrasound (actually two now) done on my thyroid. It’s kinda weird because you lay in a dark room and then they put some kind of cold, slimly stuff on your neck (which is where the thyroid is located), and then they use a machine thingy and go back and forth over the slimly goo. On a screen like a computer, all these black and white things show up and move around. It looks about like an ultrasound of a baby, only it’s a thyroid instead of the baby, so it’s not nearly as cool. Does that make sense?
Yes, that was probably the most un-medically way to describe something medical, but hey, that’s how it looked to me!
