Long duration of therapy and high activities of radioiodine are often necessary to induce remission of metastatic disease. The curative potential of radioiodine therapy, in particular in younger patients, has not yet been determined. In this retrospective study we evaluated the therapeutic outcome, total radioiodine activities and associated side-effects in 107 patients with… CONTINUE READING
