Clinical Experience with a Sensitive Immunoradiometric Assay for Serum Thyrotropin (TSH): Diagnostic and Therapeutic Implications for Hyperthyroid and Thyroid Cancer Patients
A few patients with subtle signs or symptoms of mild hyperthyroidism, concurrent with consistently normal serum thyroid hormone levels, prompted us to adapt highly sensitive TSH measurements (1–4) to routine clinical use. TSH results in over 300 patients were found to be highly consistent with the clinical impressions and of value in several clinical situations. This account will focus on specific clinical applications, while a more complete report will be published separately (5).
