  • tests
  • doi:10.1210/jc.2014-1498), the Endocrine Society recommends that initial testing for pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas include blood or urine tests for metanephrines, which are the products left behind when the body metabolizes epinephrine and norepinephrine. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • Some of the biochemical diagnostic tests used include salivary and blood serum cortisol testing, 24-hour urinary free cortisol (UFC) testing, the dexamethasone suppression test (DST), and bilateral inferior petrosal sinus sampling (BIPSS). (wikipedia.org)
  • work
  • The isotope I-131 is still occasionally used for purely diagnostic (i.e., imaging) work, due to its low expense compared to other iodine radioisotopes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Medicine
  • He later continued his endocrine studies at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, joining the faculty as a visiting professor, and died in New York in 1966. (yu.edu)
  • Iodine-131 can be "seen" by nuclear medicine imaging techniques (i.e., gamma cameras) whenever it is given for therapeutic use, since about 10% of its energy and radiation dose is via gamma radiation. (wikipedia.org)
  • research
  • Research has shown blood and urine testing for metanephrines are more effective at identifying patients who have pheochromocytomas or paragangliomas compared with other testing techniques. (oncologynurseadvisor.com)
  • hormonal
  • The endocrine effects of hormonal oxytocin and the cognitive or behavioral effects of oxytocin neuropeptides are thought to be coordinated through its common release through these collaterals. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some of these risks include endocrine, genetic, uterine, or hormonal abnormalities, reproductive tract infections, and tissue rejection caused by an autoimmune disorder. (wikipedia.org)
  • disorders
  • We offer comprehensive diagnostic, neurologic, and neurosurgical management for people with suspected normal pressure hydrocephalus, as well as those with dementia, mild or subjective cognitive impairment, and Parkinsonian gait disorders. (nyulangone.org)
  • work
  • The isotope I-131 is still occasionally used for purely diagnostic (i.e., imaging) work, due to its low expense compared to other iodine radioisotopes. (wikipedia.org)
  • primary
  • Video-assisted minimally invasive parathyroidectomy allows bilateral four-gland exploration, and is an optimal technique to treat gestational primary hyperparathyroidism. (beds.ac.uk)
  • means
  • The term hypogonadism in XXY symptoms is often misinterpreted to mean "small testicles" when it means decreased testicular hormone/endocrine function. (wikipedia.org)
  • usually
  • By contrast, other iodine radioisotopes are usually created by far more expensive techniques, starting with reactor radiation of expensive capsules of pressurized xenon gas. (wikipedia.org)
