Regular thyroid diagnostics versus augmented thyroid work-up with additional I-124 PET/US fusion for metabolic-sonographic nodule allocation in patients with benign thyroid diseases
The purpose of the study is to investigate the contribution of PET-CT with F18-choline in the diagnosis of thyroid nodule with indeterminate cytology in order to guide the best indication ...
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a new approach in treating benign thyroid nodule without surgery. It is proven effective and safe relative to traditional surgery. From previous...
Participants in this study will be patients diagnosed with or suspected to have a thyroid nodule or thyroid cancer. The main purpose of this study is to further understand the methods for...
This proposal is designed as a pilot study for the use of laser ablation for local control of symptomatic (e.g compressive) benign thyroid masses in 20 patients.
The diagnostic capacity of ultrasonography (US) for differentiating between malignant and benign thyroid nodules is crucial in preventing unnecessary invasive procedures. This is the first study to ev...
With interest, we read the article by Creo et al. published in Clinical endocrinology in October 2018. Thyroid cancer is very common in adolescents. And there is currently no well-validated evaluatio...
Thyroid cancer is the most common pediatric endocrine cancer; accurate diagnosis and prompt management of pediatric thyroid nodules is critical. The McGill Thyroid Nodule Score (MTNS), based upon clin...
A 68-year-old woman who underwent a thyroidectomy for bilateral goiter 20 years ago was referred to our department. The examination revealed a newly occurred thyroid nodule in the right central lobe. ...
In an effort to reduce overdiagnosis of low-risk thyroid cancer, recent clinical guidelines increased the size-based biopsy thresholds for thyroid nodules. The cost-effectiveness of these guidelines i...
An enlarged THYROID GLAND containing multiple nodules (THYROID NODULE), usually resulting from recurrent thyroid HYPERPLASIA and involution over many years to produce the irregular enlargement. Multinodular goiters may be nontoxic or may induce THYROTOXICOSIS.
A small circumscribed mass in the THYROID GLAND that can be of neoplastic growth or non-neoplastic abnormality. It lacks a well-defined capsule or glandular architecture. Thyroid nodules are often benign but can be malignant. The growth of nodules can lead to a multinodular goiter (GOITER, NODULAR).
A small round or oval, mostly subcutaneous nodule made up chiefly of a mass of Aschoff bodies and seen in cases of rheumatic fever. It is differentiated from the RHEUMATOID NODULE which appears in rheumatoid arthritis, most frequently over bony prominences. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
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.
