Abstract

Scintigraphy studies are very important in assessing the structure and function of thyroid gland whether it involves diagnosis or management. Thyroid scans usually conducted with TcO4-99m yield functional information valuable in the differential diagnosis of thyroid nodules. The most important role in management of nuclear medicine is pertinent to postoperative management of thyroid cancer patients.
