Paediatric patients are occasionally found to have an autonomously functioning nodule (toxic adenoma) diagnosed by a suppressed TSH and increased nodule-specific uptake on nuclear medicine radioisotope scan ([sup.99m]Tc pertechnetate or iodine-123 [[sup.123]I]).
Tc-99m pertechnetate scans high value in assessing the size, distribution, and activity of EITT.
