Introduction: Amiodarone is an antiarrhythmic iodine-rich drug, known to induce thyroid dysfunction both due to its high iodine content and through amiodarone-induced thyrotoxicosis (AIT), being this latter process classified into three different types. Type 1 is associated with increased thyroid hormone synthesis; type 2 is a destructive process with thyroid hormone release and type 3 is thought to be a mixture of the former two. Since treatment options are different, there h...

The use of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG–PET) has increased the detection of thyroid incidentalomas (TI). These are associated with a risk of malignancy between 25 and 50%. Some studies show an association between SUVmax uptake and malignancy.The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of malignancy on 18F-FDG–PET positive thyroid nodules and to evaluate the relatio...

Background: The detection of thyroid incidental uptake of radiopharmaceuticals has been increasing. Those detected by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET) have been associated with a significant risk of malignancy (8–64%). Gallium-68 (Ga-68) labelled peptides are now the standard imaging modality for staging neuroendocrine tumours (NET). Its high sensitivity has increased the discovery of incidental findings. The aim of this study was to ev...
