OBJECTIVES To determine if standardized uptake values (SUV) on positron emission tomography (PET) are predictive of thyroid pathology and the significance of serial SUV measurements of thyroid nodules over time. STUDY DESIGN Case series with chart review. SETTING Academic health center. SUBJECTS In total, 23,384 PET and PET/computed tomography (CT) scans were performed between December 2001 and April 2011. METHODS Patients with incidental thyroid uptake were identified. SUV(max), age… CONTINUE READING
