Abstract

The radioiodine therapy is considered an almost definitive and successful hyperthyroidism treatment, alternative to surgery. Unlike a standardized activity approach is still adopted, a customized dosimetric study offers the significant advantage to take into account the individual variabilities in the structures to be treated. In the present work, some of the current issues relating to customized radioiodine treatment are discussed. The experience acquired during several years of customized hyperthyroidism radioiodine treatments performed at the S. Anna Hospital in Como (Italy) is presented, together with the main results of an extensive follow up analysis.
