PET/CT in the management of thyroid cancers.
TLDR
PET/CT is a valuable imaging test, in the appropriate clinical context, for the management of thyroid cancers, and its evolving value is summarized. Expand

Resonancia magnética de tiroides y paratiroides
TLDR
The main indications of MRI in the evaluation of thyroid and parathyroid in 64 patients are reviewed and which protocols are more appropriate and which sequences are better for a proper characterization are reviewed. Expand
Economic impact of and satisfaction with a high resolution thyroid nodule clinic at the endocrinology department.
TLDR
HRTNCs at endocrinology departments, coordinated with primary care, are a viable, cost-effective alternative with a positive user perception and mean user satisfaction assessed was 4.0 points on a 5-point scale. Expand
Sonographic Elastography of the Thyroid Gland
TLDR
Thyroid gland disorders include benign and malignant thyroid nodules and diffuse thyroid disorders, a new, developing method that shows increase in clinical practice and Ultrasonography has its place in the diagnostics and follow-up of thyroid disorders. Expand
Economic impact of and satisfaction with a high resolution thyroid nodule clinic at the endocrinology department
TLDR
HRTNCs at endocrinology departments, coordinated with primary care, are a viable, cost-effective alternative with a positive user perception according to a prospective, observational, descriptive study. Expand
Certainty of pretreatment apparent diffusion coefficient in the characterization of thyroid gland pathologies
TLDR
ADC value is a promising noninvasive imaging tool that can be used for characterization and differentiation of thyroid nodules in benign and malignant patients. Expand
Efficacy of dual use of Tc‐99m‐pertechnetate and Tc‐99m‐tetrofosmin scintigraphy for the assessment of thyroid nodules
TLDR
This prospective study aims to evaluate the efficacy of gamma imaging using single and dual tracer using Tc‐99m pertechnetate and Tc-99m tetrofosmin for evaluation and management of thyroid nodules. Expand
Doppler indices of superior thyroid artery in clinically euthyroid adults
TLDR
Mean values of Doppler indices of STA in euthyroid individuals have been found in this study, and there was no significant difference in the values obtained among both the genders. Expand
The Roles of Ultrasonography and Ultrasonography-guided Fine-needle Aspiration Cytology in the Planning of Management of Thyroid Cancers
TLDR
How thyroid Ultrasonography and ultrasonography-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology could help the planning of the extent of thyroidectomy and further management is discussed. Expand

Nodular thyroid disease. Evaluation and management.
TLDR
The past decade has seen widespread application of fine-needle aspiration biopsy, new radionuclide scanning agents, and sensitive ultrasonography for diagnosing thyroid nodular disease. Expand
Combined clinical, thyroid ultrasound and cytological features help to predict thyroid malignancy in follicular and Hϋrthle cell thyroid lesions: results from a series of 505 consecutive patients
TLDR
The diagnostic value of atypia at cytology, clinical parameters and echographic patterns were examined to establish the risk of malignancy in 505 patients with follicular and Hϋrthle cell thyroid nodules at cytologists. Expand
Respective roles of thyroglobulin, radioiodine imaging, and positron emission tomography in the assessment of thyroid cancer.
TLDR
In patients with low or dedifferentiated thyroid cancer and after several courses of radioiodine therapy caused by metastatic disease, iodine negative metastases may develop and the method of choice to image these iodinenegative metastases is FDG-PET. Expand
Thyroid Aspiration Cytology: Current Status
TLDR
The aim of the current article was to discuss indications for FNA, diagnostic terminology, and post‐FNA options, issues that are important to physicians who are managing patients with thyroid nodules. Expand

TLDR
These guidelines are thorough and practical, and they offer reasoned and balanced recommendations based on the best available evidence to clinical endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, pediatricians, and internists whose practices include management of patients with thyroid disorders. Expand
The continuing importance of thyroid scintigraphy in the era of high-resolution ultrasound
TLDR
Quantitative pertechnetate scintigraphy is the most sensitive and specific technique for the diagnosis and quantification of thyroid autonomy and has proved to be valuable in risk stratification of spontaneous or iodine-induced hyperthyroidism, in the estimation of the target volume prior to radioiodine therapy and in the evaluation of therapeutic success after definitive treatment.

TLDR
Available data suggest that USE is the best available non-invasive tool comparable to fine-needle aspiration for the evaluation of thyroid nodules, provided that the nodule is solid and devoid of coarse calcifications. Expand

TLDR
The clinical significance of diffuse plus focal uptake of the thyroid on FDG-PET is not well known; it may also be associated with an increased risk of malignancy when compared with a diffuse uptake pattern only. Expand
Role of ultrasound in the assessment of nodular thyroid disease
TLDR
The evidence that US characteristics of thyroid nodules can predict the risk of malignancy is reviewed, and the use of combinations of US characteristics to stratify nodules into high and low risk for malignancies appears a promising strategy. Expand
