Abstract

Surgery is often needed to diagnose thyroid cancer, but is also the initial therapeutic modality. Several current imaging techniques are important for preoperative risk stratification. By optimizing initial thyroidectomy and lymphadenectomy, accurate and appropriate imaging can help minimize operative morbidity and potentially reduce the risk of recurrent disease.
