Palm Beach Thyroid Scan and Uptake is one of the most highly sought after specialized services that we offer here at Medical Diagnostic Scans. During this exam, the patient is asked to swallow a capsule that has radioactive iodine in it. Generally, the thyroid in the neck gathers up the iodine to create the thyroid hormone. The radioactive iodine accumulates in the thyroid, after a few hours, and creates a picture under the nuclear camera, which outlines the thyroid, in addition to measuring the efficiency of the thyroid. If additional measurements are required, they can take up to one to three hours, and often times are not ready until the following day. If your doctor has offered you a written referral, give us a call today and schedule an appointment.
