"High Deductible? Call us for affordable cash price"

Boynton Beach Thyroid Scan and Uptake is one of our most sought out and asked for tests that we specialize in here at Medical Diagnostic Scans. When going in for an examination, a patient is asked to take a pill orally that contains radioactive iodine. In most cases, the thyroid in the neck holds on to iodine to create the thyroid hormone. After accumulating in the thyroid (after a few hours) the radioactive iodine creates a picture under the nuclear camera. This picture outlines the thyroid and also measures the efficiency of it. If a patient requires additional measurements this can take up to one to three hours. Sometimes these are not ready until the next day.
