Abstract :

Positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) with [.sup.18]F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) is used in staging, restaging, and evaluation of therapy response in many cancers as well as differentiated thyroid carcinomas especially in non-iodine avid variants. Its potential in less frequent thyroid tumors like medullary, anaplastic thyroid cancers, thyroid lymphoma and metastatic tumors of the thyroid however, is not well established yet. The aim of this review is to provide an overview on the recent applications and indications of [.sup.18]F-FDG PET/CT in these tumors and to focus on the controversies in the clinical setting. Keywords: Thyroid cancer, positron emission tomography, [.sup.18]F-fluorodeoxyglucose [.sup.18]F-fluorodeoksiglukoz (FDG) pozitron emisyon tomografisi/bilgisayarli tomografi (PET/BT) pek cok kanserde ve ozellikle iyot tutmayan varyant olmak uzere diferansiye tiroid karsinomlarinda evreleme, yeniden evreleme ve tedaviye yanitin degerlendirilmesinde kullanilir. Meduller, anaplastik tiroid kanserleri, tiroid lenfomasi ve metastatik tumorler gibi tiroidin daha nadir tumorlerindeki potansiyeli henuz tam olarak belirlenmemistir. Bu derlemenin amaci, [.sup.18]F-FDG PET/BT'nin bu tumorlerdeki son uygulamalari ve endikasyonlari hakkinda genel bir bakis sunmak ve klinik cercevedeki tartismalar uzerine yogunlasmaktir. Anahtar kelimeler: Tiroid kanseri, pozitron emisyon tomografisi, [.sup.18]F-fluorodeoksiglukoz
