UNLABELLED Planar 131I scintigraphy is routinely used to detect radioiodine-avid metastases of differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC). However, the modality has limitations, such as low sensitivity and lack of anatomic landmarks. We investigated whether SPECT with integrated low-dose CT may have additional value over planar imaging in detecting residue and metastases in DTC patients. METHODS We studied 117 consecutive thyroidectomized DTC patients. On 2 different hybrid dual-head gamma… CONTINUE READING
