Abstract

We report scan findings of Tl-201 in a case of histologically proved Warthin's tumor. Dual isotopes acquisition was performed in a case of left parotid Warthin's tumor. Both early and delayed Tc-99m-pertechnetate (Tc- 99m) images showed increased uptake at the tumor. Tl-201 scan also showed an increase of uptake on the early image and retention on the delayed image. The uptake ratios of Tl-201 were 3.0 (early) and 2.3 (delayed). Scan findings of Tl-201 in a case of Warthin's tumor were similar to those of Tc-99m, and the interpretation of Tl-201 images should be accompanied with Tc-99m images.
