Ultrasound-guided ethanol ablation is an effective treatment modality for patients with cystic thyroid nodules (cystic portion > 90%); however it is less effective in predominantly cystic ...
Nodular goitre is common in the general population and less than 5% of the patients who undergo surgery for solitary thyroid nodules have cancer, in absence of clinical suspicion. Nodu...
Thyroid nodules are among the common alterations of the thyroid. Depending on the detection method the prevalence is between 20% and 50%, whereas the incidence increases with improvement o...
The purpose of this study is to prospectively compare percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) versus percutaneous laser ablation (LA) for the treatment of solid thyroid nodules.
This study evaluates the efficacy of the HIFU for the treatment of benign thyroid nodules with the FastScan version using assessment of patient experience and adverse event reporting.
Background The purpose of this study was to determine a quantitative index, the initial ablation ratio (IAR), representing the amount of ablation, to predict therapeutic success and to evaluate the co...
Comparison between different thermal ablation systems for thyroid nodules regarding their different procedural characteristics such as treatment-time, number of shots and energy transmission in the co...
The aim of the study was to evaluate the role of high b-value (2000 sec/mm2) diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) by using Readout Segmentation of Long Variable Echo-trains (RESOLVE) in differentiating pa...
Image-guided ablation of thyroid disease is increasingly being commonly reported. Techniques including ethanol injection and thermal ablation using radio-frequency, laser, and microwave devices have b...
Thyroid fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is one of the most performed medical procedures worldwide. It is used as a diagnostic test to separate benign thyroid nodules (colloidal and hyperplastic...
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).
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.
The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.
A homeobox protein and transcription factor that localizes to the cell nucleus where it activates expression of thyroid specific genes such as THYROGLOBULIN and the THYROTROPIN RECEPTOR. It is critical for maintaining thyroid tissue in a differentiated state and also plays a role in lung development. Mutations in the NKX2-1 gene are associated with CHOREA, BENIGN HEREDITARY.
A number of small lung lesions characterized by small round masses of 2- to 3-mm in diameter. They are usually detected by chest CT scans (COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY). Such nodules can be associated with metastases of malignancies inside or outside the lung, benign granulomas, or other lesions.
