Figure 4: A 47-year-old woman with multifocal papillary thyroid carcinoma, underwent total thyroidectomy and high-dose 131I residual thyroid ablation. Post-therapy WBI scan showed a focal site of abnormal 131I uptake in the right lower chest (Arrow indicating I 131 uptake in right breast lesion). SPECT-CT thorax localized the lesion to lower outer quadrant of right mammary gland raising the suspicion of a co-existing primary breast malignancy or a metastastic deposit from DTC. Ultrasound guided FNAC confirmed breast lesion to be metastases from DTC
