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
Thyroid nodules are a common finding in the general population,however, they are mostly unpalpable and usually discovered either during neck ultrasound (US) examination or by pathological examination at autopsy. They are found in about 8% of adults. Most thyroid nodules ''incidentalomas" are benign, however 7% may be malignant. Early detection of thyroid cancer helps in early treatment and better survival US is an accurate method for detection of thyroid nodules; however, US ha...
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 of surgical resection.
Thyroid nodules are a common presentation in the clinic, with an increasing incidence, especially in women. Their clinical significance is mainly related to excluding malignancy (4.0 to 6.5% of all thyroid nodules).
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 HIFU studies, it caused shrinkage of thyroid nodule up to 70% from original size. Unfortunately, 5-10% of nodule do not shrink. Those which do not shrink are usually large in size and therefore a second HIFU treatment may help. This study is going to evaluate the efficacy and safety of reappl...
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 the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer. Many of the test performed are in the context of standard medical care that is offered to all patients with thyroid nodules or thyroid cancer. Other tests are performed for research purposes. In addition, blood and ti...
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.
Nowadays, the investigation of thyroid nodules is limited by the fact that up to 49% of the fine needle aspirations (FNA) performed on them are of "indeterminate cytological signification". Moreover, no reliable molecular marker for thyroid cancer have been developed up to this day. The goal of this project is to study the expression of a specific kind of protein convertase in benign and in malignant thyroid nodules to determine its potential as a clinically useful biomarker.
Use of ethanol injection in treatment of cystic thyroid nodule
To investigate the association between metabolic syndrome (MS) and thyroid nodule(s).
This trial studies how well the diagnostic deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) methylation signature works in detecting thyroid cancer in patients with thyroid nodules. Using diagnostic testing, such as the diagnostic DNA methylation signature, may be a less invasive way to check for thyroid cancer.
This study evaluates the usefulness of molecular classifier to aid the diagnosis of malignancy in the material obtained by fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of thyroid nodule. All participants will undergo FNAB with routine cytological assessment and molecular testing. Patients will undergo surgery or be followed-up, according to the clinical guidelines. The diagnostic power of combined molecular/clinical classifier will be compared to prediction based on clinical features o...
1. Evaluation of the role of serum midkine in differentiating malignant from benign thyroid nodule 2. studying the level of serum midkine in relation to different thyroid cancer stages
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 of ultrasonic technology. The CelonPro Surge bipolar coagulation electrode operated with the compatible power control unit and compatible tube pump is indicated for ablation and coagulation of soft tissue, including thermal inactivation and/or volume reduction of locally defined tissue areas, s...
This clinical trial is to evaluate the effectiveness and the safety of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) in the treatment of benign thyroid nodules.
The purpose of the present protocol is to evaluate the response rate to treatment of these symptomatic benign nodules with radiofrequency as an alternative to surgical treatment. This thyroid nodules ablation with radiofrequency will be directed by a single percutaneous procedure guided by ultrasound. The procedure includes an ultrasound with percutaneously radiofrequency ablation of benign thyroid nodule. Clinical and ultrasonographic monitoring will last a year with consulta...
To detect any changes in Quality of Life in patients with benign thyroid diseases who undergo thyroidectomy compared to patients with benign thyroid diseases and conservative treatment and healthy subjects.
According to the grades of echogenicity to evulated thyroid nodules is a subjective process and is thus influenced by the observer's judgement. The investigators first proposed the ultrasound gray-scale ratio (UGSR) to explore its efficacy for differentiating papillary thyroid microcarcinomas from small nodular goiters.
We will study the effect of taking eltroxin at different time, i.e. fasting or postprandial periods. We will also study the effect of levothyroxin treatment in Chinese people
Thyroid nodule patients with suggestion of fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) offered by ultrasound are enrolled in the study. CTCs tested by Optimizing method and FNAB will be performed simultaneously. This is a double blind trial which pathologists and inspectors of CTCs don't know the result of each other. Surgical pathology and diagnostic results of FNAB is the primary endpoint and comparison will be made to see if CTCs combined with ultrasound can get similar diagnostic ...
Background: Most patients with thyroid cancer have a long life expectancy, and it has been assumed among health professionals that therefore the quality of life (QOL) is good. Some European studies have shown that the quality of life among thyroid cancers is worse than the general population, and almost as low as other cancer diagnoses, with a worse prognosis and a more burdening treatment. Aim: To examine prospectively the quality of life in participants undergoing diagnostic...
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 thyroid nodules (90% > cystic portions > 50%). The volume reduction after EA has been reported 64% - 69.8% for predominantly cystic thyroid nodules. EA is insufficient for 26% (27/103) of patients with predominantly cystic thyroid nodules. Radiofrequency ablation to patients with incompletely ...
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. Nodules left untreated seem to have a slight growth potential in borderline iodine-deficient areas. Interstitial laser photo-coagulation (ILP) is a procedure for local hyperthermia and photocoagulation, allowing minimally invasive treatment of benign tumors, including thyroid nodules. The aim of t...
Recently, targeted next generation sequencing (NGS) platforms have been introduced that allow inexpensive testing for hundreds of mutational hotspots at the same time. A number of additional mutational markers in thyroid cancer have been identified. Highly promising markers associated with tumor prognosis have also been found. This multi-institutional study aims to validate the diagnostic use of mutational markers in thyroid nodules with indeterminate cytology. The propo...
It has been shown that insulin might be involved in the pathogenesis of thyroid growth. Objective To evaluate the impact of IR and metformin use on the volume of benign thyroid nodules (TNs). Methods A randomized clinical trial to placebo (P) or MTF use. Previous fine needle aspiration confirming the diagnosis is necessary to inclusion. Patients will receive similar tablets of MTF and placebo and instruct to take 3 tablets/day of MTF (500mg/tablet). Thyroid volume, as T...
