Table 2 Characteristics of the thyroid incidentalomas visualized on CT and PET.
|Thyroid incidentaloma detected by|
|Chest CT (n=23)||18F-FDG PET (n=15)|
|Diffuse, n (%)6||7 (46.7%)|
|Focal, n (%)||8 (53.3%)|
|SUV max||3.1 (2.4–6.0)|
|1.7 (1.4–2.9)||1.1 (1.8–3.1)|
|Atypia or follicular neoplasm, n||3||2|
|Suspicious or confirmed malignancy, n||1||1|
|Bilateral total thyroidectomy, n||3||3|
|Nodular goiter, n||1||0|
|Papillary thyroid cancer, n (%)||3 (13.0%)||3 (37.5%)***|
|Data are shown as the median (interquartile range (IQR) 25–75) and number (%).|
* All patients had the diffuse FDG uptake of thyroid.
** Lobectomy was performed for the patient with nodular goiter.
*** In the group of focal FDG uptake with definite thyroid nodule (n=8).
