"Thyroid stunning" from diagnostic iodine-131 imaging prior to ablative therapy with 131I for well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma has been well reported, but documentation of the effect on clinical outcome is sparse. The purpose of this retrospective study was to investigate the clinical effects of stunning. The outcome of 131I ablative therapy in a group of patients (n=36) who had diagnostic scans using 185 MBq (5 mCi) of 131I was compared with that in a group (n=36) who had diagnostic scans… CONTINUE READING
