This excerpt has been provided in the absence of an abstract.

To assess the therapeutic effect of radioisotope imaging in patients with thyroid disease, we reviewed the thyroid clinic charts of 730 consecutive patients seen at Wilford Hall U.S. Air Force Medical Center from September 1981 through September 1983. Two-hundred fifty-one patients had received a thyroid scan as part of their initial evaluation. The clinical impression (based on the history, physical findings, and thyroid function test results), scan interpretation (provided by the nuclear medicine staff), and subsequent therapy were recorded for each patient (Table 1). Iodine-131 was used to evaluate patients with substernal mass; all other patients were scanned with 123I.
