Objective: Fine-needle aspiration of a thyroid nodule may result in a diagnosis of a follicular neoplasm. Establishing a definitive diagnosis would allow the patient to undergo the appropriate initial thyroidectomy. This study evaluated the ability of positron emission tomography (PET) to assess the malignant potential of a follicular neoplasm.

Methods: Prospective cases series.

Setting: Tertiary care academic center.
