[18F]Tetrafluorobuorate (TFB) PET/CT voor detectie van schildklierkanker
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 1–3. Despite advancement in newer targeted therapies, the clinical utilization of radioiodines remains robust in therapeutic management of thyroid function and monitoring outcomes of treatment 4–8.
