Recombinant human thyrotropin (rhTSH)-stimulated serum thyroglobulin (Tg) level alone is sufficient to monitor for recurrent disease in low-risk patients with a history of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) (strength of recommendation [SOR] A, meta-analysis). Low-risk patients are defined as patients who have undergone total thyroidectomy and radioactive iodine (I131) remnant ablation therapy and show no clinical evidence of recurrent disease.
