Résumé
To perform a meta-analysis of published data on the prevalence and risk of malignancy of focal thyroid incidental uptake (FTIs) detected by Fluorine-18-Fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) or PET/CT.
A comprehensive literature search of studies published up to and including December 2012 was performed. Pooled prevalence and malignancy risk of FTIs were calculated, including a sub-analysis for the geographic areas of origin of the studies.
34 studies including 215,057 patients were selected. Pooled prevalence of FTIs was 1.92% (95% confidence interval [95%CI]: 1.87-1.99%). Overall, 1522 FTIs underwent histopathology evaluation. Pooled risk of malignancy was 36.2% (95%CI: 33.8-38.6%), without significant differences among various geographic areas.
FTIs are observed in about 2% of 18F-FDG-PET or PET/CT scans and carry a significant risk of malignancy. Therefore, further investigation is warranted whenever FTIs are detected by 18F-FDG-PET or PET/CT.
