Diagnostic Accuracy of Real-Time Sonography in Differentiating Diffuse Thyroid Disease From Normal Thyroid Parenchyma: A Multicenter Study.

08:00 EDT 11th July 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Diagnostic Accuracy of Real-Time Sonography in Differentiating Diffuse Thyroid Disease From Normal Thyroid Parenchyma: A Multicenter Study."

The purpose of this multicenter study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of real-time sonography (US) for differentiating diffuse thyroid disease (DTD) from normal thyroid parenchyma among radiologists blinded to patients' clinical, serologic, and imaging history and to determine the differences in diagnostic accuracy among radiologists from different institutions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.

A common form of hyperthyroidism with a diffuse hyperplastic GOITER. It is an autoimmune disorder that produces antibodies against the THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE RECEPTOR. These autoantibodies activate the TSH receptor, thereby stimulating the THYROID GLAND and hypersecretion of THYROID HORMONES. These autoantibodies can also affect the eyes (GRAVES OPHTHALMOPATHY) and the skin (Graves dermopathy).

An aggressive THYROID GLAND malignancy which generally occurs in IODINE-deficient areas in people with previous thyroid pathology such as GOITER. It is associated with CELL DEDIFFERENTIATION of THYROID CARCINOMA (e.g., FOLLICULAR THYROID CARCINOMA; PAPILLARY THYROID CANCER). Typical initial presentation is a rapidly growing neck mass which upon metastasis is associated with DYSPHAGIA; NECK PAIN; bone pain; DYSPNEA; and NEUROLOGIC DEFICITS.

Autoantibodies that bind to the thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) receptor (RECEPTORS, THYROTROPIN) on thyroid epithelial cells. The autoantibodies mimic TSH causing an unregulated production of thyroid hormones characteristic of GRAVES DISEASE.

A condition characterized by the presence of rudimentary THYROID tissue at the base of the TONGUE. It is due to failed embryonic development and migration of thyroid tissue to its normal location. The lingual thyroid usually cannot maintain adequate hormone production thereby resulting in HYPOTHYROIDISM.
