Long-term surveillance of papillary thyroid cancer patients who do not undergo postoperative radioiodine remnant ablation: is there a role for serum thyroglobulin measurement?
CONTEXT Serum thyroglobulin (Tg) assays are considered fundamental in postoperative surveillance of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) patients. However, the postsurgical profile of Tg levels hasExpand

Reducing the Number of Unnecessary Thyroid Biopsies While Improving Diagnostic Accuracy: Toward the “Right” TIRADS
Context The prevalence of thyroid nodules in the general population is increasingly high, and at least half of those biopsied prove to be benign. Sonographic risk-stratification systems are beingExpand

The Diagnosis and Management of Thyroid Nodules: A Review
Importance Thyroid nodules are common, being detected in up to 65% of the general population. This is likely due to the increased use of diagnostic imaging for purposes unrelated to the thyroid. MostExpand

Interobserver agreement of various thyroid imaging reporting and data systems
Ultrasonography is the best available tool for the initial work-up of thyroid nodules. Substantial interobserver variability has been documented in the recognition and reporting of some of the lesionExpand

Follow-up of differentiated thyroid cancer – what should (and what should not) be done
The treatment paradigm for thyroid cancer has shifted from a one-size-fits-all approach to more personalized protocols that range from active surveillance to total thyroidectomy followed byExpand

Lack of association between obesity and aggressiveness of differentiated thyroid cancer
PurposeAim of this study was to evaluate the association between body mass index (BMI) and aggressive features of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) in a prospective cohort.MethodsPatients with DTCExpand

Identification and optimal postsurgical follow-up of patients with very low-risk papillary thyroid microcarcinomas.
CONTEXT Most papillary thyroid microcarcinomas (PTMCs; ≤ 1 cm diameter) are indolent low-risk tumors, but some cases behave more aggressively. Controversies have thus arisen over the optimumExpand

Low-risk differentiated thyroid cancer and radioiodine remnant ablation: a systematic review of the literature.
BACKGROUND Radioiodine remnant ablation (RRA) has traditionally been one of the cornerstones of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) treatment. The decision to use RRA in low-risk (LR) andExpand
