Abstract

History: Patient was diagnosed with papillary carcinoma 4 years ago, total thyroidectomy and subsequent remnant ablation with 30 mCi I-131 at that time. Patient was informed that she was cured and follow-up was not necessary. Seen recently by an endocrinologist, she was found to have elevated serum thyroglobulin; negative diagnostic whole-body I-131 (5 mCi) imaging. While being evaluated for repeat I-131 treatment based on elevated serum thyroglobulin, a FDG PET/CT was requested.
