"Thyroid Cancer" describes all current diagnostic techniques, including FDG-PET and MRI. In recent years, these modalities have documented hitherto hidden radioiodine-negative metastases, thus improving surgical therapy. The whole gamut of treatment, including surgery, radioiodine therapy, percutaneous radiation therapy and medical management, is covered. In some 10 per cent of differentiated thyroid cancers, the well-known treatment tools of surgery and radioiodine therapy are not sufficient. New treatment modalities such as high-dose radioiodine therapy, redifferentiation therapy with retinoic acid and recombinant TSH are therefore highlighted. In a special section devoted to medullary thyroid cancer, new imaging procedures such as octreotide scintigraphy are described. The second edition includes two new chapters, on I-124 PET and dosimetry. Other chapters have been modified particularly in view of the new UICC classification, with special regard to the definition of T1 tumors.
