    Nice summary!
    By Shani F. on 06. September 2018 for Differential Diagnoses – Hyperthyroidism (Thyrotoxicosis)

    This is a really good overview of the previous discussions. The small mistake about radio-iodine uptake is Hashitoxicosis should be fixed, but the rest is pretty great.

    Omission of subsequent investigaitons
    By Hamed S. on 19. February 2017 for Differential Diagnoses – Hyperthyroidism (Thyrotoxicosis)

    Good table but a discussion of subsequent investigations to further characterise the nodule is warranted. For example following up a cold nodule with U/S guided FNA . The algorithm wasn't took clear for example starting with thyroid function test, followed by iodine uptake and further imaging/biopsy
