When you visit Nuclear Medical Scans near Lake Worth, a Thyroid Scan and Uptake procedure by our medical professionals can identify how well your parathyroid glands are regulating calcium in the blood stream, and how well your hormone levels are balanced. By swallowing a capsule of radioactive iodine, the patient's thyroid collects the material. Our medical team lead by Dr. N. Henry Pevsner, is then able to capture an image using a nuclear camera. The outline produced by this enabled our team to check your thyroids activity and determine if it is hyper or hypo.

In Lake Worth, ourThyroid Scan and Uptake procedure can also reveal any cysts or tumors. It's a simple process which allows measurements to be made 1-3 hours later, and again the following day. We take several scans of the neck within a short window of time, so that we can ensure the validity and accuracy of our results. Nuclear Medical Scans is a trusted facility, and our professionals are excellent at communicating these results directly with both you and your personal physician so that you can reach an accurate diagnosis and get the treatment you need.
