Palm Beach Gardens Thyroid Scan and Uptake is a popular procedure at our facility at Medical Diagnostic Scans. The exam involves having our patient swallow a capsule containing radioactive iodine. Normally a properly functioning thyroid will gather iodine to make the thyroid hormone. The radioactive iodine will mimic this process and after a few hours it fills up in the thyroid. A nuclear camera will then be used to take an image of the outline of the thyroid and will determine how well it is functioning. Taking more measurements take anywhere up to three hours and are normally ready the next day. Call us today with your physician referral and we will schedule you an appointment.
