BACKGROUND There is no consensus on the optimal treatment of multinodular goiter (MNG), but in the past few years, the use of radioiodine has increased. This study's objective was to evaluate adjuvant methimazole (MMI) therapy to increase and standardize radioiodine uptake (RAIU) with a fixed therapeutic (131)I dose of 1110 MBq (30 mCi). METHODS Our study… CONTINUE READING
