Abstract

Tc-99m]MIBI thyroid scintigraphy is a useful tool to differentiate benign from malignant thyroid nodules. This report aims to show the diagnostic performance of Tc-99m]MIBI scintigraphy used in an 83-year-old woman who had a thyroidectomy about 7 years ago. She had a mass of thyroid which was very large, non-homogenous and painless. Tc-99m]MIBI scintigraphy could be a pre-surgical method to investigate the follicular nodules and predicting the malignant form of thyroid nodules. Also, it will provide tissue information for Tc-99m]MIBI images in thyroid lesions.
