This study investigated 1) the relationship between thyroid volume and thyroid function in radioactive iodine (RAI) treatment for Graves' disease, and 2) the activity of thyroid-related Ig in serum on the responsiveness of thyroid tissue to RAI. The changes in thyroid volume per megabecquerel (MBq) of 131I retained in thyroid tissue was calculated by… CONTINUE READING
