Anti-thyroglobulin (aTG) measurements are used as an aid in the diagnosis of Hashimoto’s and Graves’ diseases, which are autoimmune diseases affecting the thyroid gland.
Join Dr. Josep M. Auge Fradera, an expert in thyroid disorders, as he reviews the role of anti-thyroglobulin antibodies and utilizes clinical case findings for examples of the value of testing. He will also present his analysis comparing the existing Atellica® anti-thyroglobulin (aTg) assay with the new Atellica anti-thyroglobulin (aTgII) assay and highlight the clinical benefits of aTgII.
- Recognize the role of anti-thyroglobulin antibodies in monitoring thyroid autoimmune disease and differentiated thyroid cancer patients
- Understand why assay design influences the recovery of anti-thyroglobulin antibodies making clinical evaluation mandatory
- Review a comparison of Atellica® IM aTg and Atellica IM aTgll performance through an independent study
- Focus on clinical evaluation results when transitioning from Atellica IM aTg to Atellica IM aTgll
