Serum thyroglobulin and imaging have been routinely used in the evaluation of thyroid cancer patients suspected of having metastatic or recurrent disease. A more sensitive technique capable of identifying the sites of disease not detected by current imaging methods might improve overall management. The objective in this study was to demonstrate the feasibility of using positron emission tomography (PET) for the detection of recurrent thyroid cancer.
