Thyroid ultrasonography (US) is the most common and extremely useful, safe, and cost-effective way to image the thyroid gland and its pathology. US has largely replaced the need for scintiscanning except to detect iodine-avid thyroid metastases after thyroidectomy.

Thyroid scan and uptake uses small amounts of radioactive materials called radiotracers, a special camera and a computer to provide information about your thyroid's size, shape, position and function that is often unattainable using other imaging procedures. Tell your doctor if there's a possibility you are pregnant or if you are breastfeeding. A thyroid scan is an outpatient procedure usually done in the nuclear medicine section of a hospital. This is usually part of the radiology department. If you have a thyroid scan, you will be asked to take a drink, or swallow a pill containing the iodine. You will then wait for the iodine to be taken up by the thyroid - usually about 4 hours. this book is `must' reading for anyone seriously interested in x-ray fluorescent scanning of the thyroid.

A thyroid scan is a nuclear imaging test used to see the thyroid gland, which is located in the neck and helps to regulate your metabolism. A thyroid scan is usually necessary when your doctor wants to examine a growth that has been found on your thyroid%(14). In addition to a relevant history, examination and thyroid function testing (TFT), thyroid scans can assist in the work-up of patients with thyroid conditions. 3 Typical scan appearances are shown in Figure 2. In practice, the two main applications of thyroid scans are to: differentiate the causes of hyperthyroidism. A thyroid scan uses a radioactive iodine tracer to examine the structure and function of the thyroid gland. This test is often done together with a radioactive iodine uptake test. How the Test is Performed. The test is done in this way: You are given a pill that contains a tiny amount of radioactive iodine. After swallowing it, you wait as the. are new to this edition.
