Subclassification of Tumor Extension and Nodal Metastasis in Papillary Thyroid Cancer to Improve Prognostic Accuracy of the Eighth Edition of the Tumor –Node–Metastasis Classification

This study investigated methods to further improve the prognostic accuracy of the TNM-8th.MethodsWe enrolled 5683 patients who underwent surgery for PTC at the Kuma Hospital. We subdivided tumor extension (T4a) into T4a1 and T4a2 based on intraoperative gross findings and N1 according to size (

In this study, a highly sensitive and accurate LC–MS/MS method was firstly established for subsequent measurement of PdG in serum of three different female groups: thyroid cancer patients (TCs), healthy controls (HCs) and pregnant women. The factors affecting the sample preparation, MS/MS method, gradient elution program, selection of chromatographic column and internal standard (IS) have been optimized in this study. Compared with enzyme immunoassay (EIA) method, we used LC–MS/MS to shorten analysis time, increase sensitivity, raise specificity, simplify sample preparation, and reduce costs. As a result, the l...

This study aims to automatically risk stratify thyroid nodules to determine which nodules need FNA and ultimately reduce the number of unnecessary FNAs. While machine learning has been applied to improve Thyroid Imaging, Reporting, and Data System (TI-RADS) using manually extracted features, to date there has been few applications of machine-learning to automatically classify ultrasound images.

Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHDS) is an autosomal dominant genodermatosis characterized by benign cutaneous tumors (fibrofolliculomas, trichodiscomas, and acrochordons), basal lung cysts, pneumothoraces, and a 20% to 30% lifetime risk for renal cancer. There are isolated cases of other cancers in BHDS reported in the literature, including oncocytoma, rhabdomyoma, melanoma, thyroid cancer, meningioma, colon cancer, and breast cancer, but only the increased renal cancer risk has been substantiated. This is the case of a 9-year-old girl who presented with a leiomyosarcoma whose tumor genetic analysis showed FLCN c.365_372...
