Abstract

We present two cases of subacute thyroiditis in which increased radionuclide activity in the affected areas was observed on 201Tl thyroid scintigrams. These were taken to evaluate cold areas on the 99mTc-pertechnetate thyroid scintigrams. This finding suggests that 201TI may be a potentially useful radionuclide in visualizing inflammatory lesions.
