Radioactive Iodine Uptake Test (RAIU) or Thyroid Uptake: This is a type of nuclear medicine imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive material to measure thyroid function.
Dotanoc FDA PET Scan: Ga-68-DOTATOC radioactive drug is used to detect somatostatin receptor-positive neuroendocrine tumours (NETs).
Advanced Robotic Surgery for Thyroid Nodules (Parathyroid adenoma): A minimally invasive robot-assisted surgical technique that involves removal of complete or a part of the thyroid gland.
Thyroid Cancers: Thyroid cancers that occur in the cell of the thyroid can be diagnosed and treated using:
Thyroidectomy: This surgery is performed to treat thyroid cancers which may involve,
Total Thyroidectomy: Complete removal of the thyroid tissue.
Near-total Thyroidectomy: Most of the thyroid tissue is removed.
Thyroid Lobectomy: Half of the thyroid gland is removed.
Lymph Node Dissection: Nearby lymph nodes are removed.
Thyroid Hormone Therapy:
After removal of the thyroid gland, medication is prescribed to suppress the secretion of TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone).
Radioactive iodine is used to treat recurrent cancer.
