Thyroid imaging was performed in 53 hyperthyroid cats with technetium-99m as pertechnetate($^{99m}TcO_{4}$). Increased radionuclide accumulation was found in all cats. Thirty-four cats had bilateral enlargements of the thyroid glands and 14 cats had unilateral enlargements. Five cats had multi-focal accumulation of $^{99m}TcO_{4}$ in the ventral neck or mediastinum. Conclusively, nuclear thyroid image is useful method in diagnosis of feline hyperthyroidism.
