Post-surgical ablation of thyroid remnant with radioactive iodine (RAI) in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) is aimed to destroy any thyroid remnant in the thyroid bed (remnant ablation) and any microscopic foci of cancer cells eventually present within the thyroid remnant (adjuvant therapy). The present text is an attempt to offer practice guidelines for the indication of thyroid ablation and the preparation of DTC patients considering the latest achievement in the field and the changing epidemiology of DTC observed in the last 10 years.

Abstract

Post-surgical ablation of thyroid remnant with radioactive iodine (RAI) in differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) is aimed to destroy any thyroid remnant in the thyroid bed (remnant ablation) and any microscopic foci of cancer cells eventually present within the thyroid remnant (adjuvant therapy). The present text is an attempt to offer practice guidelines for the indication of thyroid ablation and the preparation of DTC patients considering the latest achievement in the field and the changing epidemiology of DTC observed in the last 10 years.
