Technetium-99m tetrofosmin imaging in thyroid diseases: comparison with Tc-99m-pertechnetate, thallium-201 and Tc-99m-methoxyisobutylisonitrile scans


Technetium-99m tetrofosmin is a lipophilic phosphine used for myocardial perfusion imaging. Biodistribution studies have shown significant thyroid uptake of tetrofosmin and preliminary reports have suggested that tetrofosmin imaging may be of value in patients with thyroid cancer. In this study, tetrofosmin whole-body scintigraphy was performed in 35… (More)
