Abstract

Thyroid nodules are often incidentally noted on imaging studies with an estimated incidence of 25% on neck CT scan. The presence of a PET-avid thyroid nodule, especially in a patient with a history of malignancy, should prompt evaluation with fine-needle aspiration to evaluate for malignancy given the high probability.
