Open Access Journal of Oncology (OAJOY)  “Early Thyroid Cancer Detection"

Thyroid cancer is among the most common cancer in women and new cases continue to rise in the entire world. There is rarer subset of thyroid cancer as papillary microcarcinoma (black ink) that even small is aggressive and there is the need to early diagnosis to avoid their insidious behaviour. The incidence of this cancer is kept under control mostly by surgery. The current issue comprises of the fusion three articles pertaining to the development and validation of a standard method for investigated the utility of the Ultrasonography with BRAF mutation testing of thyroid fine-needle aspiration cytology specimens for the risk papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC).

“Black Ink” Sonographic Pattern as a Predictor for Invasive Papillary Thyroid Micro Carcinoma: A Case Report

 

Background: This study investigated the utility of the Sonographic pattern "Black Ink" with BRAF mutation testing of thyroid fine-needle aspiration cytology specimens for the risk papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC). Case Presentation: We describe a case of a 41-year-old Caucasian woman affected by a ultrasonography “Black Ink” papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC) of the left lobe of the thyroid gland with very tiny size (Ø 0.4 cm). The characteristics, with the Diagnostic Imaging using Ultrasonography (US), Superb Micro-Vascular Imaging (SMI), fine-needle-aspiration cytology (FNAC) and mutation analysis are here discussed. There are more rare subtypes of thyroid cancer as papillary microcarcinoma "Black Ink" that even if small, are invasive and there is why the need to early diagnosis to avoid their aggressive behavior is needed. Nowadays, focusing on the size, the cut-off for non-occult tiny tumors has dropped to 0.3 cm. This value is of great relevance. Conclusion: Ultrasonography, FNAC and BRAF molecular study have proven to be the most sensitive diagnostic combination for the early detection of thyroid cancer. Despite the size of this micro-lesion, the Black Ink ultrasonographic pattern associated with malignant cytology at FNAC represents an important biological risk factor and could still be a predictor of the PTMC and risk for neck lymph node metastases.

Papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (Black Ink)

We report a case of a 58-year-old Caucasian woman affected by papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC) of the left-lobe of the gland with very small size (Ø 0.3 cm). The characteristics with the Diagnostic Imaging using Ultrasonography, ADF (Advanced Dynamic Flow), and fine-needle-aspiration cytology (FNAC) are discussed, comprising a very small micro-focus of radial shape, with markedly hypoechoic echostructure, irregular margins, supplemented by peripheral vessel formation. It acquires an image which appears similar to a brisk visualization of a dark ink stain in the normal thyroid weave. We call such a pattern “Black Ink” with ultrasonographic image and believe consistent with the infiltrating variant of papillary thyroid microcarcinoma if associated with malignant cytology after FNA.

Insidious Rare Thyroid Microcarcinoma (Black Ink)

Thyroid cancer is among the most common cancer in women and new cases continue to rise in all the world. The incidence of this cancer is kept under control mostly by surgery. There are more rare subtypes of thyroid cancer as papillary microcarcinoma (black ink) that even small are aggressive and there is the need to early diagnosis to avoid their insidious behaviour. Thirteen patients have been selected and studied

Preliminary data on the role of contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in early diagnosis and staging of rheumatoid arthritis.

This paper is concerning with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and the use of CEUS in the diagnosis and staging of the disease. 51 patiens were studed for this clinical syntoms, radiology and biomarkers. The contrast enhanced ultrasound allowes to estabilish an early diagnosis and staging of RA by monitoring the vascular progression of the synovial membrane. There are good prospectives for further confirmation of the methodology.
