Rising thyroglobulin (Tg) serum concentration in patients after total thyroidectomy due to differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) with no pathological radioiodine uptake on posttherapeutic whole-body scan (WBS) constitutes a challenge for physicians dealing with DTC management.The FDG PET–CT is regarded as a gold diagnostic standard in such cases.Our aim was to find factors which may help predicting positive PET–CT result, a...

Introduction: Multifocal papillary thyroid microcarcinama (PTmC) has been considered as more aggressive than the unifocal one.Aim of the study: This paper aims to compare this two groups considering histopatological sign of aggressivity, presence of inflammation and radioiodine uptake.Materials and methods: The analysis concerned 81 patient with microcarcinoma (PTmC) selected from group of 961 (8%) diagnosed and treated in conventi...
