A multigene genomic classifier (GC) test for thyroid nodules with indeterminate cytology shows high sensitivity and negative predictive value.
The best overall performance was that of the ACR Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System, which classified more than half of the requested biopsies as unnecessary.
Obesity was not associated with more aggressive clinicopathologic features of thyroid cancer.
Adherence to the 2015 recommendation from ATA — to use lobectomy rather than complete thyroidectomy for low-risk differentiated thyroid cancer — is increasing.
Childhood radiation-induced thyroid cancer does not affect all-cause mortality compared with healthy individuals.
Malignancy was more common in children with thyroid nodules classified as indeterminate by BSRTC criteria compared with adults.
The BABA robotic thyroidectomy technique appears to be safe, with excellent outcomes in benign and malignant thyroid disease.
Ethanol sensitization before radiofrequency ablation of benign thyroid nodules reduced time, ablation energy, and complications compared with conventional ablation.
Outcomes after radioiodine therapy are similar after preparation with either recombinant human thyrotropin or thyroid hormone withdrawal.
Most imaging centers in the United States fail to analyze lateral neck lymph nodes during preoperative ultrasounds in patients with thyroid cancer.
Male thyroid cancer survivors have a nearly 50 percent higher risk of developing CVD than female survivors within five years of cancer diagnosis.
