    • Scintigraphy of the gland;
    • Fine-needle puncture biopsy with aspirate cytology.

    Methods of treatment of thyroid cancer

Therefore, the treatment of thyroid cancer is held on the collaboration of 2 medical branches: Endocrinal Surgery Unit and Clinic for Nuclear Medicine.

    Radioiodine ablation: radioactive iodine (131I) is implemented to patient orally in capsule. Iodine atoms are accumulated only in thyroid cells and due to β-radiation inhibit the thyroxine-producing activity, which allows to get rid of metastases as well. A small part of γ-radiation is also present, that is why this manipulation needs to be carried out under strict supervision of attending physician.

    The operations may be performed as standard or minimally invasive. During the entire operation neuromonitoring is held to save the vocal cord nerve.

    Who treats the thyroid cancer?

Cornelia Dotzenrath, who obtains the diploma of the European Board of Surgical Qualification and the Chief of Nuclear Medicine division (Klinik für Nuklearmedizin) Dr. Marco Tosch, who was endorsed as outstanding radiologist by FOCUS® Magazine.
