New immunochemiluminometric assays (ICMA) of thyrotropin (TSH) have been reported to facilitate the diagnosis of hyperthyroidism. To compare the accuracy of ICMA-TSH with that of a conventional immunoradiometric assay (IRMA-TSH), we examined 115 consecutive patients of a thyroid outpatient clinic. On the basis of complete thyroid-function testing, including thyroliberin tests, the untreated patients (n = 89) were subclinically hyperthyroid (n = 21), subclinically hypothyroid (n = 13), or… CONTINUE READING
