- Brief summaryAfter initial treatment of DTC patients are followed biochemically by thyroglobulin to detect possible recurrence. Nowadays patients are treated blindly with high dose 131I. When recurrence is suspected a whole body scintigraphy is made, after blind administration of high dose, Ďtherapeuticí, 131I to diagnose and treat recurrence and metastatic disease. In up to 50% this strategy can considered to be futile because they had a negative post-therapeutic whole body scan and/or no objective therapy effect. 124I in combination with whole body PET became recently available for use in the follow-up of DTC. This could make it possible to more accurately re-stage patients in a whole body procedure, perform dosimetry for subsequent 131I therapy and predict the outcome of the treatment before the actual treatment with 131I. Additionally, recurrent DTC lesions that do not accumulate iodine can be re-staged without the futile treatment with 131I. FDG-PET is able to detect these lesions. The value of FDG-PET before 131I treatment however has not been tested. The combination of these two diagnostic tools, 124I-PET and FDG-PET, has a potential to allow earlier and better restaging and selection for treatment.

The objective is to evaluate the value of combined imaging with 124I-PET and FDG PET in the prevention of futile treatment with high dose 131I.
