Figure 2-15. Widespread pulmonary metastases from papillary thyroid carcinoma. A, Plain chest radiograph showing bilateral micronodular lung metastases. B, Total-body scan performed 72 hours after high-dose (100 mCi) radioactive iodine (131I) therapy showing intense and diffuse 131I uptake in both lungs (arrowheads); faint 131I uptake was noted in a supraclavicular lymph node (arrow), indicating metastatic nodal disease.

body scanning, but not with radiography, could also be ablated in some patients with 131I, whereas bone metastases visible on radiographs were rarely cured by 131I ablation (Figures 2-16 and 2-17).
