The thyroid gland is one of the most sensitive organs for radiation-induced oncogenesis and the magnitude of the risk from external radiation is well understood. This is not the case for internal radiation derived from the radioiodines, a matter of practical importance because of medical use and potential accidental exposure. This article reviews current knowledge derived from the follow-up of patients receiving diagnostic or therapeutic 131I and populations exposed to radioactive fallout. The… Expand
RET expression in papillary thyroid cancer from patients irradiated in childhood for benign conditions.
TLDR
The greater incidence of RET-immunopositives in the irradiated group indicates that the expression of RET immunoreactivity is strongly associated with radiation exposure, but the prognostic significance of this is not yet clear. Expand
Prognostic relevance of previous exposure to ionizing radiation in well-differentiated thyroid cancer
TLDR
Ionizing radiation increases risk for well-differentiated thyroid cancer (WDTC) but not adverse cancer behavior, and surgeons should be aware of the high incidence of microcancer among patients with previous exposure to radiation. Expand
Well-Differentiated Thyroid Cancer: An Overview and the Chernobyl Effect
TLDR
The first section of this chapter contains an overview of the clinical characteristics of welldifferentiated thyroid cancer including risk factors, symptoms, diagnosis, histologic types, management and follow-up strategies. Expand
Medical Therapy of Patients Contaminated with Radioactive Cesium or Iodine
TLDR
After the patient’s emergency conditions are addressed, the treating physicians and assisting experts should assess the amount of radioactive material that has been internalized and estimation of the radiation dose that is delivered and the specific radionuclides inside the body. Expand
Iodine and differentiated thyroid cancer: Pathogenetic and therapeutic implications
The purpose of this review is to discuss the various means by which iodine ingestion through dietary intake or therapeutic administration can influence the pathogenesis, prevalence, presentation orExpand
The treatment of differentiated thyroid cancer in children: emphasis on surgical approach and radioactive iodine therapy.
TLDR
It is recommended that total thyroidectomy and central compartment lymph node dissection is the surgical procedure of choice for children with DTC if it can be performed by a high-volume thyroid surgeon and long-term follow-up is recommended. Expand
Multiple neoplasms in an irradiated cohort: pattern of occurrence and relationship to thyroid cancer outcome.
TLDR
An excess of concordance of radiation-related neoplasms that could be explained by known risk factors was demonstrated, and it was found that thyroid cancer behavior was not related to the occurrence of multiple tumors. Expand
Iodine Toxicity and Its Amelioration

TLDR
Avian work has demonstrated that oral bromide salts can reverse the malaise and growth depressions caused by high doses of I (as KI) added as supplements to the diet, and whether bromine therapy has a place in I toxicity situations remains to be determined. Expand
Radiobiological basis in management of accidental radiation exposure
TLDR
The present review discusses the knowledge gained in radiation biology that can be exploited for better treatment and management of radiation accident victims and deeper insight into the mechanisms of radiation injury under accidental radiation conditions would be helpful in achieving better biodosimetry, decorporation strategies and improvement in prevention/post-irradiation management of Radiation accident patients. Expand
Assessment of the nuclear medicine personnel occupational exposure to radioiodine.
TLDR
The findings suggest that radiation protection principles based on whole-body and finger ring dosimetry may be insufficient to monitor the absorbed dose estimation of the nuclear medicine staff who are occupationally exposed to 131I. Expand

Thyroid cancer after diagnostic administration of iodine-131.
TLDR
It is suggested that protraction of dose may result in a lower risk than an acute X-ray exposure of the same total dose when exposure to 131I is combined with data from the A-bomb survivors. Expand
Thyroid cancer after exposure to external radiation: a pooled analysis of seven studies.
TLDR
Based on limited data, there was a suggestion that spreading dose over time (from a few days to > 1 year) may lower risk, possibly due to the opportunity for cellular repair mechanisms to operate. Expand
Radioiodine-induced thyroid cancer: Studies in the aftermath of the accident at Chernobyl
TLDR
Preliminary evidence indicates that there is a distinct pattern of somatic genetic changes in the thyroid cancers from the Chernobyl area. Expand
Childhood thyroid cancer following the Chernobyl accident: a status report.
TLDR
The incidence of childhood thyroid cancer in the United States was rare before 1940, peaked in 1955, but then declined sharply, possibly reflecting the change in medical recommendations for x-ray treatments. Expand
Issues and epidemiological evidence regarding radiation-induced thyroid cancer.
TLDR
It is concluded that the most important needs are to obtain more information on thyroid cancer risks following low-level or highly fractionated radiation exposures and following 131I exposure in children. Expand
Thyroid nodularity after diagnostic administration of iodine-131.
TLDR
While results demonstrated a positive association between diagnostic administration of 131I and the subsequent occurrence of thyroid nodules, it is unclear whether the association is causal, as the possibility of confounding by indication for 131I administration cannot be ruled out. Expand
Dose-response relationships for radiation-induced thyroid cancer and thyroid nodules: evidence for the prolonged effects of radiation on the thyroid.
TLDR
The slope of the dose-response curve for thyroid neoplasms appears to have reached a maximum 25-29 yr after radiation exposure, but the dose response continued to be elevated at the end of follow-up, consistent with the tumorigenic effects of radiation lasting at least 40 yr. Expand
Thyroid cancer risk to children calculated
TLDR
The Chernobyl reactor accident was followed by a sharp increase in the incidence of thyroid cancer among children and adolescents in Belarus and Ukraine, and from the data set compiled after this incident the increased risk of developing thyroid cancer after exposure to radioactive iodine was estimated.

Potassium iodide for thyroid blockade in a reactor accident: administrative policies that govern its use.
A marked increase in thyroid cancer among young children who were in the vicinity of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant at the time of the 1986 accident strongly suggests a possible causalExpand
Chernobyl-related thyroid cancer in children of Belarus: a case-control study.
TLDR
Case-control comparisons indicate a strong relationship between thyroid cancer and estimated radiation dose from the Chernobyl accident and differences persisted within pathway to diagnosis, gender, age and year of diagnosis, and level of iodine in the soil. Expand
