Special Issue "New Insights in Thyroid Diagnostics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020).
Interests: thyroid diagnostic; PET/CT; genetics; quality of life
Thyroid pathologies are considered the most frequent endocrine disorders and thyroid carcinoma the most frequent endocrine malignant disease. The polymorphism of the symptoms in benign thyroid pathology and the dramatic increase of the incidence of thyroid nodules underline the necessity of continuous research in the field, for better and appropriate diagnosis and therapies. The era of precise medicine and personalized therapies needs new diagnostic approaches, based on the already standardized protocols, but bringing better accuracy and better pathophysiologic understandings. This Special Issue on “New insights in Thyroid Diagnostics” will focus on novel strategies of clinical and imaging diagnostics, together with serological, histological, genetic, and molecular analysis, which tend to be more and more present in daily practice. Further, the results of studies regarding the diagnostics of modified quality of life in thyroid patients are welcome, together with papers focusing on multiple malignancies associated with thyroid disease, benign or malignant. Researchers are encouraged to publish their work in this field, both with respect to benign thyroid diseases and thyroid carcinomas, including original articles or systematic reviews.
