OBJECTIVE To compare diagnostic performance of gray-scale ultrasound and combined gray-scale ultrasound with color Doppler ultrasound in predicting malignancy of thyroid nodules by using tissue diagnosis as the reference standard. DESIGN Diagnostic test with prospective data collection. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between November 2007 and October 2008, 31(More)
This study included 106 volunteer elderly women who were living in an urban area of Khon Kaen province. The mean (+/-SD) of age and of serum 25(OH)D concentration of these elderly women was 69.42 (+/-6.77) years and 33.32 (+/-7.14) ng/ml respectively. There was a significant inverse relationship between serum 25(OH)D and PTH concentration. Serum PTH(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine reference data for age-matched bone mineral density (BMD) of normal northeastern Thai women. MATERIAL AND METHOD 350 northeastern Thai women aged 20-70 years were prospectively studied. After interview, the subjects were examined for BMD of lumbar spines and proximal femur. Mean BMD of each group was determined for each skeletal(More)

BACKGROUND Post-treatment I-131 whole body scan (WBS) is known to be a very sensitive test in detecting metastasis in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). Therefore, in the presence of this sensitive method, the role of chest radiography (CXR) in the diagnosis of pulmonary metastasis has been questioned. OBJECTIVE The present study aimed to find the(More)
BACKGROUND Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) is a cancer group that shares molecular and cellular origin but shows different clinical courses and prognoses. Several prognostic factors have been reported for predicting recurrence for individual patients. This literature review aimed to evaluate prognostic scores for predicting recurrence of DTC. (More)
BACKGROUND Differentiated thyroid cancer is the most common endocrine malignancy with a generally good prognosis. Knowing long-term outcomes of each patient helps management planning. The study was conducted to develop and validate a clinical prognostic score for predicting disease remission in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer based on patient,(More)
