Abstract

Patients treated with RAI exhibited an increased risk for sialadenitis as well as a reduction in swallowing-related and global head and neck quality of life. Our findings suggest these patients should be screened for salivary morbidity and may benefit from both pre-RAI prophylaxis and post-RAI intervention.
