UNLABELLED Precise localization of the foci of (131)I uptake for management of patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma can be difficult because of a lack of anatomic landmarks. The objective of the present study was to demonstrate the clinical usefulness of (131)I SPECT/CT fusion images in patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma. METHODS CT and SPECT were performed 7 d after administration of a therapeutic dose of (131)I to 17 patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma… CONTINUE READING
