[18F]Tetrafluorobuorate (TFB) PET/CT voor detectie van schildklierkanker

Project summary

Iodine is an essential element in thyroid physiology and the accumulation of iodine in the thyroid was found to be a critical step for the synthesis of thyroid hormones as early as 1915. For over a half century, radioiodines have been successfully used in diagnosis and therapy of thyroid disorders such as hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer . Despite advancement in newer targeted therapies, the clinical utilization of radioiodines remains robust in therapeutic management of thyroid function and monitoring outcomes of treatment .
