Diagnosis of Graves' disease (GD) was based on clinical and biochemical features of hyperthyroidism, [technetium.sup.99] scintiscan
, and histological features.
The CS diagnosis was based on the clinical signs and symptoms (central redistribution of fat, hypertension, osteoporosis, and muscle weakness), hormonal data, and imaging tests (pituitary magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), adrenal computed tomography (CT), and adrenal scintiscan
(8) If thyroid nodules are detected on ultrasound scan, the patient should undergo thyroid scintiscan
to establish the presence of hot nodules.
The approach to find out the nature of the thyroid swellings are of clinical examination, thyroid function tests, scintiscan
, USG, FNAC and HPE.
Parathyroid technetium scintiscan
(99mTc Sestamibi; Technetium-99 MIBI; methoxy-isobutyl-isonitrile) was requisite and revealed left lower parathyroid adenoma (Figure 6).
We believe like other that true diagnosis of MNG should be based on clinical examination, USG, scintiscan
, intraoperative findings and confirmation of histopathological studies.
Many gadgets and lab tests are now available to know the exact diagnosis, pathology anatomy and fitness before operation like endoscopy, X-ray CT Scan, MRI, Scintiscan
etc., With the advent of safe anesthesia, most efficient blood transfusion services, the surgical complications have come to minimum, still complications do occur even with the experienced surgeons.
The diagnosis of TD was based on thyroid scintiscan
or thyroid ultrasound examinations.
Clinical features, scintiscan
characteristics and X-ray progression of late onset rheumatoid arthritis.
Common examples of patient selection criteria for targeted radionuclide therapy Indications Minimum Contraindications haematological and biochemical criteria Inoperable/failed Hb >10 g/l Pregnancy/lactation conventional therapy Good performance WCC >3x Inability to comply status: self-caring [10.sup.9]/l with radiation protection instructions Confirmed histology Platelets Short life >100x expectancy [10.sup.9]/l Positive uptake on a Urea <10 Renal failure diagnostic mmol/l scintiscan
Stop/suspend Creatinine Liver failure interfering <160 treatment/drugs [micro]mol/l GFR >40 ml/min Biochemical tumour marker Radioactive iodine therapy: Thyroid cancer
Adrenal scintigraphy is effective at characterizing the pattern of hyperfunctioning lesions, unilateral versus bilateral uptake, but it is not typically used in the initial workup of AIs.[sup.15,16] Metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scintiscan
can be useful in assessing patients with suspected pheochromocytoma.
Total body octreotide scans can also be used in the metastastic work-up (5) and most recently radionucleotide scanning such as MIBG scintiscan
is playing an important role.
