Abstract

Introduction The initial treatment of differentiated thyroid cancer is thyroidectomy, followed by remnant ablation with iodine-131 (I-131) in some patients. However, controversy exists concerning the appropriate radioiodine dose. The aim of the study is to compare the success rate of low and high activities of I-131 for postoperative remnant ablation.
