A kinetic study of [131I] iodide and [99mTc] pertechnetate in thyroid carcinoma to explain a scan discrepancy: case report



A kinetic study of [131I] iodide and [99mTc] pertechnetate in thyroid carcinoma to explain a scan discrepancy: case report



Journal of Nuclear Medicine 18(8): 796-798



A study of unusual 1-131 and [99mTc] pertechnetate kinetics was carried out in a case of thyroid carcinoma. A major discrepancy in the handling of iodide, probably resulting from a deficient iodine organification process, was shown.
