Nationwide trends in surgery and radioiodine treatment for benign thyroid disease during iodization of salt
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
Iodization of salt was introduced in Denmark in 1998 because of mild-to-moderate iodine deficiency (ID). The aim of this study was to analyze the utilization rate of surgery and radioiodine therapy for benign thyroid disorders before and after the introduction of iodization, and to study a possible association between the changes and the raised iodine intake.
