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.
