Özet

Aim of Study: While using F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography computed tomography (PET/CT) for other than thyroid disease, an increased frequency of incidentally discovered areas of focally or diffuse increased uptake within the thyroid gland can be seen. We aimed to find the focal thyroid FDG uptake and compare the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) results with cytology and histology results.
