UNLABELLED Detection of residual tissue after thyroidectomy for papillary or follicular thyroid carcinoma may be performed using diagnostic imaging with either (123)I or (131)I. The former is often preferred to avoid "stunning"-defined as a reduction in uptake of the therapeutic dose of (131)I caused by some form of cell damage from the diagnostic dosage of the radionuclide. Stunning could potentially reduce the therapeutic efficacy of (131)I given to ablate a post-thyroidectomy remnant. This… CONTINUE READING
