Abstract: 
CT scanning of the thyroid following oral administration of potassium iodate was performed on two sisters in whom raised calcitonin levels had been found at a pentagastrin stimulation test undertaken to screen for medullary carcinoma of the thyroid. Three histologically proven, clinically occult C-cell carcinomas measuring 2 mm or less were detected by CT scanning. This technique may be useful prior to surgery in patients in whom medullary carcinoma of the thyroid is suspected but not proven.
