Figure 5: Diagnostic Iodine-131 whole body scan in a patient previously treated for papillary carcinoma of the thyroid. Single-photon emission computed tomography image showed focal area of intense increased uptake of Iodine-131 in the left side of the neck (lower left image). Single-photon emission computed tomography-computed tomography localized the focus of Iodine-131 uptake to a subcentimeter left submandibular lymph node (lower right image)
