Patient history

This 51 year-old male with thyroid cancer was referred for an iodine-131 scan on the BrightView XCT system to assess for metastatic disease and to evaluate dosimetry following radioiodine treatment.

The images acquired on the BrightView XCT showed thyroid remnants in the thyroid bed, left cervical lymph node metastases and bilateral lung field metastases, and radiotracer accumulation in the right hip region.

Physician impression of SPECT/CT

SPECT/CT identified a new finding in the right intertrochanteric region - a weight-bearing area that will require orthopedic involvement (i.e. pin placement). The images provided information regarding a pathological fracture prone area.
