Lung metastases were demonstrated by total-body 131I scans in 23 patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma, at a time when chest x-ray was normal. This total-body 131I scan was performed after the administration of 2 mCi (in 11 patients) or 100 mCi (in 12 patients). Overall uptake of 131I in lungs was less than 1% of the administered dose in 11 patients. All patients were treated with radioiodine. No lung uptake was found in 20 patients at the last 100 mCi post-therapy scan. Among them, Tg… CONTINUE READING
