BACKGROUND Amiodarone-induced thyrotoxicosis (AIT) is caused by excessive hormone synthesis and release (AIT I) or a destructive process (AIT II). This differentiation has important therapeutic implications. PURPOSE To evaluate (99m)Tc-sestaMIBI (MIBI) thyroid scintigraphy in addition to other diagnostic tools in the diagnosis and management of AIT. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Thyroid and (99m)Tc-MIBI scintigraphies were performed in 20 consecutive AIT patients, along with a series of biochemical… CONTINUE READING
