OBJECTIVES: In clinical practice, approximately 10-25% of post-surgical differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) patients with high serum thyroglobulin (Tg) and negative (131)I whole-body scan (WBS) have poor prognosis due to recurrent or metastatic lesions after radioactive iodine treatment. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the value of (18)F-FDG PET/CT scan in DTC patients with high serum Tg level and negative (131)I WBS. METHODS: 69 post-surgical DTC patients with high serum Tg level and negative post ablation (131)I WBS were enrolled in this study...

Radiofrequency (RF) parathyroid ablation is a noninvasive treatment for hyperparathyroidism in dogs. There are no published data assessing factors associated with RF parathyroid ablation success or failure in order to guide patient selection and improve outcome. The purpose of this retrospective analytical study was to determine whether imaging findings, biochemical data, or concurrent diseases were associated with RF heat ablation treatment failure. For inclusion in the study, dogs must have had a clinical diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism, undergone cervical ultrasound and RF ablation of abnormal parathyroid tissue, and must have had at least 3 months of follow-up information available following the date of ultrasound-guided parathyroid ablation...

PURPOSE: Radiofrequency ablation has been advocated as an alternative to radioiodine and/or surgery for the treatment of autonomously functioning benign thyroid nodules. However, only a few studies have measured radiofrequency ablation efficacy on autonomously functioning benign thyroid nodules. The aim of this work was to evaluate the 12-month efficacy of a single session of radiofrequency ablation (performed with the moving shot technique) on solitary autonomously functioning benign thyroid nodules...

A 66-year-old woman with a history of papillary thyroid cancer status after total thyroidectomy underwent I radioiodine ablation therapy 3 months after surgery. Posttherapy whole body planar imaging revealed focal intense I uptake in the posterior right abdomen. SPECT/CT of this region localized the uptake to the medial lower pole of the right kidney. Further evaluation with MRI demonstrated a correlative suspicious right renal mass. The patient underwent right partial nephrectomy with pathology demonstrating that the renal mass was of thyroidal origin (papillary subtype)...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Noninvasive follicular thyroid neoplasm with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP) is a new terminology proposed for encapsulated follicular variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma (EFVPTC). Recently, thyroid cancer incidence has increased dramatically, without affecting related mortality rate. This increase is widely attributed to the intensified surveillance leading to a substantial increase in the diagnosis of small classic papillary thyroid cancers and EFVPTCs...

We report a very rare case of incidental intrapericardial thyroid in a papillary thyroid cancer patient. Post ablation scan revealed iodine-131 ((131)I) uptake in the mid-chest. Fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography ((18)F-FDG PET/CT) was performed and showed a (18)F-FDG avid lesion between the right atrium and the ascending aorta, (which was) shown tube an ectopic thyroid and not metastasis. The lesion disappeared on a 6 month follow-up (123)I whole body scan while serum thyroglobulin was negative...

OBJECTIVE: In nearly 20%-30% of patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) relapse and 7% of them die during the next 10 years after initial diagnosis. In 10%-30% of patients with DTC after ablation therapy during the follow-up show a negative iodine-131 ((131)I) whole-body screening test ((131)I WBS) and increased serum thyroglobulin (Tg) level. Loss of ability of DTC metastatic lesions to trap (131)I is associated with pure survival and often aggressive disease. Several studies have shown that in DTC cases non trapping (131)I, fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)F-FDG PET) can detect recurrence or metastases with high sensitivity (80%-90%)...

Differentiated thyroid cancers are usually cured by an appropriate surgery and a radioiodine remnant ablation. If metastases occur, successive radioiodine administrations and/or local treatments can be provided. Nevertheless, some patients will be, or become refractory to radioiodine. In case of significant and rapid progression of metastatic lesions, they will be candidate to kinase inhibitor treatments. Two agents are now approved in this situation: sorafenib and lenvatinib. Lenvatinib (Lenvima(®)) is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) targeting the VEGFR1-3, FGFR 1-4, PDGFR-α, RET and c-kit...

We report a case of incidental uptake of 99mTc-methylene diphosphonate in the thyroid in a 62-year-old female with a history of breast cancer treated with quadrantectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, who underwent total-body-bone scintigraphy during follow up. Planar scintigraphy was followed by neck SPECT-CT that demonstrated an area of increased tracer uptake in the neck at the left lobe of the thyroid. Neck ultrasonography showed a nodule corresponding to SPECT-CT finding and the ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration documented the presence of papillary carcinoma...
