Abstract

Background: The detection of recurrence or metastasis might be challenging in patients, who underwent total thyroidectomy and radioactive iodine therapy for Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma (DTC), with increased serum Thyroglobulin (Tg) levels and negative I-131 whole body scan (I-131-WBS) results.
