More Limited Role of Radionuclide Uptake and Imaging studies in 2017

These studies are now limited to diagnosis of thyrotoxicosis, toxic nodules, I/123 I/131  imaging for thyroid cancer, and PET FDG for advanced cancers. The old use to determine if a nodule is cold for cancer diagnosis is now bypassed by a normal TSH and needle biopsy. Newer PET agents such as I/124 have potential in the future.
