The normal endocrine function is primarily for the quality of life of people, irrespective of
age, sex, and race. Detrimental thyroid function leads to multiple disorders, including
cardiovascular, renal, neurologic, foetal development, and sexual drive. Moreover, if left
untreated may aggravate the formation of thyroid nodules and subsequently to cancer.
Therefore, periodic assessment of thyroid glandfunction may eliminate these complications
and improve the patients' quality of life. In this review, we have discussed the different
thyroid disorders, their complications, radiological techniques, and invasive procedures for
assessing the thyroid gland.
