Test Name: THYROID AUTOANTIBODIES PANEL (THYROID PREOXIDASE AND THYROGLOBULIN ABS)
Test Code: 1016
Components: Serological panel comprising of most common autoantibodies implicated in autoimmune thyroid disease
Test Name: THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODIES (THG)
Test Code: 1110
Components: Used in the serological work up of a suspected autoimmune thyroid disease.
Test Name: ANC COMBO - ANTENATAL PROFILE & TPC (CBC, Blood Group, Glucose FaSTing, Urinanalysis, HIV 1 & 2, Abs, Hepatitis B,VDRL,TPC)
Test Code: 1360
Components: • Conventional antenatal check-up panel along with assessment of thyroid status using chemiluminescence technology.
Test Name: THYROID PANEL II
Test Code: 1499
Components: Assessment of TSH 3rd Generation, Free T3 and Free T4 assays for accurate diagnosis of thyroid dysfunction
Test Name: NSE (NEURON SPECIFIC ENOLASE)
Test Code: 1702
Components: Measurement of NSE in serum can assist in the differential diagnosis and prognosis of a variety of neuron-destructive and neurodegenerative disorders. Elevated NSE concentrations are observed in patients with neuroblastoma, pancreatic islet cell carcinoma, medullary thyroid carcinoma, pheochromocytoma, and other neuroendocrine tumors, neural crest-derived tumors as well as in certain benign conditions. Serum NSE measurement has its greatest utility in the follow-up of patients with tumors of any type that have been shown to secrete NSE. It is an auxiliary test in the diagnosis of small cell lung carcinoma.
Test Name: THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES
Test Code: 3062
Components: Anti-TPO antibodies are the most common anti-thyroid autoantibody, present in approximately 90% of Hashimoto's thyroiditis, 75% of Graves' disease and 10-20% of nodular goitre or thyroid carcinoma. It is considered as the gold standard for diagnosis of Chronic Autoimmune (Hashimoto) Thyroiditis. Also, 10-15% of normal individuals can have high level anti-TPO antibody titres.High serum antibodies are found in active phase chronic autoimmune thyroiditis. Thus, antibody titer can be used to assess disease activity in patients that have developed such antibodies.
Test Name: CALCITONIN
Test Code: 3126
Components: • Helps to diagnose C-cell hyperplasia and medullary thyroid cancer (MTC). • To evaluate the effectiveness of treatment for MTC, and to monitor patients for recurrence. • Is also used to screen for MTC in family members of patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN - 2). • Calcitonin levels may be elevated in some patients with cancer of the lungs, breast or pancreas, in patients with chronic renal failure, pernicious anemia, in pregnant females at term or in newborns. • Elevated basal and pentagastrin stimulated calcitonin indicates MTC.
Test Name: THYROXINE FREE, FREE T4
Test Code: 3228
Components: Free T4 test is primarily ordered in response to an abnormal TSH test result. Free T4 will be ordered along with a TSH to give the doctor a more complete evaluation of the adequacy of the thyroid hormone feedback system. These tests are usually ordered when a person has symptoms of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. Most of the T4 and T3 circulates in the blood bound to protein, while a small percentage is free (not bound). Blood tests can measure total T4 (unbound plus bound), free T4, total T3 (bound plus unbound), or free T3. Since most T3/4 is bound to protein, the total T3/4 can be affected by protein levels and protein binding ability, but the free T3/4 is not.
Test Name: TRIIODOTHYRONINE, FREE T3 (FT3)
Test Code: 3234
Components: A free or total triiodothyronine (free T3 or total T3) test is used to assess thyroid function. It is ordered primarily to help diagnose hyperthyroidism and may be ordered to help monitor treatment of a person with a known thyroid disorder. Most of the T4 and T3 circulates in the blood bound to protein, while a small percentage is free (not bound). Blood tests can measure total T4 (unbound plus bound), free T4, total T3 (bound plus unbound), or free T3. Since most T3 is bound to protein, the total T3 can be affected by protein levels and protein binding ability, but the free T3 is not.
Test Name: THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 3G
Test Code: 3250
Components: The test of choice for assessing Assessment of thyroid function.
