Conference paper

Abstract

Thyroid cancer, especially the differentiated kind, is one of the most popular subjects in the oncological literature. Moreover, this disease is one of the “favorite children” of nuclear medicine for evident historical reasons: the administration of 131-I for diagnostic and therapeutic reasons has for more than 40 years been strongly involved in the management of thyroid cancer, which therefore is among the first diseases where nuclear medicine has assumed a decisive role as a distinct speciality.
