The number of incidentally detected thyroid lesions found with (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography is increasing. Malignant cases incidentally found with this technique are mainly primary thyroid cancers, particularly papillary thyroid carcinoma, which tend to harbor a higher rate of unfavorable prognostic features than routinely diagnosed primary thyroid cancers. The significance of standardized uptake values in predicting malignancy of incidental thyroid fluorodeoxyglucose… CONTINUE READING
