Resumo da Biografia


The thyroid gland is the only gland or organ that absorbs iodine. This makes it safe to use radioactive iodine (RAI) in treating thyroid diseases, such as Graves' and thyroid cancer. RAI is an effective method to test the thyroid gland's function and to see if there are any thyroid cells remaining in the body that may cause a recurrence of thyroid cancer. To make the procedure of the treatment effective there is a protocol that has to be followed to ensure accuracy. By following the regime maximum uptake will occur in any remaining normal thyroid tissue or metastatic thyroid cancer. The protocol also includes what precautions you have to adhere to for public safety.
