Delray Beach Thyroid Scan and Uptake is a popular procedure often requested from patients at our facility at Medical Diagnostic Scans. Our patients have to swallow a capsule containing radioactive iodine during the exam. The thyroid normally gathers iodine in order to produce the thyroid hormone. Once the radioactive iodine builds up in the thyroid, it makes an image with the nuclear camera, which provides an outline of the thyroid. The Thyroid Scan and Uptake helps to measure how well the thyroid functions. More measurements can be taken if need be, but they can take anywhere from one to three hours longer. Results from additional measurements will not be available until the next day. Call to make your appointment with your doctor's referral.
