AbstractIncreasing use of 18F-Fluorodeoxy glucose (FDG) Positron Emission Tomography Computed Tomography (PET CT) has resulted in an increased frequency of incidentally discovered areas of focally increased FDG uptake within the thyroid gland - thyroid incidentalomas. We aimed to compare radiological characteristics of thyroid incidentalomas with cytology, histology and ultrasound findings.
