OBJECTIVE Follicular (FN) and Hürthle cell neoplasms (HCN) are considered indeterminate on thyroid fine needle aspiration cytology and are preoperative diagnostic challenges. The role of [(18)F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) in characterizing indeterminate thyroid nodules remains equivocal, because of the increased FDG uptake by some benign thyroid nodules. The objective of this study was to compare the FDG positron emission tomography/computerized tomography (PET/CT) characteristics of… CONTINUE READING
