We investigated the biokinetics of 99mTc-sestamibi in the thyroid of euthyroid volunteers (EVs) and in patients with autoimmune thyroid diseases and determined the best time interval between 99mTc-sestamibi injection and calculation of uptake. Forty EVs, 30 patients with Graves’ disease (GD), 15 patients with atrophic Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (AHT) and 15 patients with hypertrophic Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HHT) underwent 99mTc-sestamibi thyroid scintigraphy. Dynamic images were acquired for 20… CONTINUE READING
