Bangladesh is an endemic region for thyroid diseases. About 10% people of this country suffer from it. About 60% of the patients in our institute are thyroid related. Thyroid Division deals with both diagnosis and therapy of thyroid disorders.
Thyroid Uptake test:
This test is used to see the initial functional status of thyroid cells, to exclude thyroiditis from thyrotoxicosis and for dose determination in cases of thyrotoxicosis.
To see the size of the thyroid and to evaluate the functional status of the gland or a nodule.
High resolution ultrasonogram of the thyroid is also done in this division to see the texture of the gland and nature of any nodule (anatomical delineation).
Huge numbers of hormone assay tests are done in our in-vitro division. T3, T4, TSH, FT3 , FT4 , Tg and anti-Tg levels are analyzed.
