    ABSTRACT: Objectives: Fixed dose Iodine-131 (RAI) treatment is a simple method which does not obviate sophisticated calculations. In this study, we compared the results of fixed 10mCi and 15 mCi RAI treatment.Patients and Methods: In this study we included 55 patients who received fixed 10 mCi and 15 mCi RAI treatment between 1997-2008 years and were followed for at least 2 years. Then we analyzed the results as successful (euthyroid, hypothyroid) and unsuccessful (persistant hyperthyroid) treatment rates and other parameters that could have affected the results. Results: The success rate in patients who received 10 mCi RAI was 87% (euthyroid 9.1%, hypothyroid 78.2%). The success rate in patients who received 15 mCi RAI was 100% (hypothyroid). There is no statistically significant difference between these groups except mean propythiouracil doses (10 mCi: 190 mg, 15 mCi: 350 mg, p <0.05). Conclusion: Fixed 10 mCi and 15 mCi RAI dose applications were both successful in the treatment of Graves&apos; disease. Albeit at a lower rate persistent hyperthyroidism can be seen in patients given fixed 10 mCi RAI dose.

    ABSTRACT: In a 70-year-old female with history of left breast cancer (S/P mastectomy 21 years ago) and gastric lymphoma (S/P partial gastrectomy six years ago), a new apical lesion in the left lung was revealed by recent thorax CT. FDG PET/CT study was requested to evaluate the thoracic mass and extent of the disease. FDG PET showed three foci of intensely increased FDG uptake in the left lung, mediastinum and right groin (not shown). All these pathologic findings correlated with CT lesions (not shown). Coronal and transaxial whole body FDG PET images (Figure 1. D, E, F) demonstrates multiple hypermetabolic foci at the iliac bifurcation level corresponding mass lesion on CT images.
