In previous literature, 18 F-FDG-PET/ CT imaging significantly impacted differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) therapy. Low thyroglobulin (Tg) levels and negative Iodine-131 (131I) whole-body scan (WBS), along with negative 18 F-FDG-PET/ CT, suggested a lesser likelihood of active illness. Positive 18 F-FDG-PET/CT findings, however, were associated with a variety of signs of local recurrence and regional or distant metastases in patients with suspected WBS. We aim to evaluate the utility of 18 F-FDG-PET/CT in managing DTC patients with negative 131I post-therapy WBS and elevated Tg.
