If Thyroglobulin Antibody is negative, then Thyroglobulin is tested on the Beckman Coulter DxI (CPT code: 84432).
If Thyroglobulin Antibody is positive then, Thyroglobulin is tested by LC/MS/MS (CPT code: 84432).
|Thyroglobulin Antibody||≤1 IU/mL|
|Thyroglobulin, LC/MS/MS||<0.4 ng/mL|
Thyroglobulin measurements are most useful in the postoperative monitoring of patients with papillary, follicular, and Hurthle cell carcinomas. However, approximately 20% of individuals develop autoantibodies to thyroglobulin. Since these antibodies interfere with immunoassay measurement of thyroglobulin, it is necessary to determine the presence or absence of antibodies before measuring thyroglobulin. This panel provides a sensitive method for determination of thyroglobulin autoantibodies, with subsequent measurement of thyroglobulin by either a sensitive immunoassay (Tg Ab negative samples) or LCMSMS (Tg Ab positive samples). The mass spectrometry assay has no interference from autoantibodies.
