Jonathan LoPresti, MD, PhD, discusses the challenges of taking thyroglobulin measurements at ENDO 2016.

BOSTON – Although serum thyroglobulin measurements are critical indicators of differentiated thyroid cancer, the TSH levels must remain constant and thyroglobulin must be measured consistently with the same assay for these measurements to be effective.

In this video from ENDO 2016, Jonathan LoPresti, MD, PhD, from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, discusses some of the challenges of interpreting thyroglobulin measurements.
