Important Information:
This test may be useful in in monitoring patients with well-diffentiated thyroid cancers. Thyroglobulin Antibodies present in the sample could affect the accuracy of Thyroglobulin test results. Undetectable levels of Thyroglobulin should be interpreted with caution if anti-Thyroglobulin is present. Thyroglobulin results should be reviewed for concordance with other relevant clinical information and must be interpreted in that context.
