Measurement of Thyroid Iodine Uptake

By |2021-07-30T14:02:31+03:00September 14th, 2020|Endocrine system|

Measurement of thyroid iodine uptake procedure is used to determine the fraction of an arbitrary quantity of (radioactive) iodide taken up by the thyroid, using a small test dose. ❰❰ PATIENTS INSTRUCTIONS • This procedure requires an administration of a radioactive material. • If there is

Thyroid Scintigraphy

Thyroid scintigraphy is a nuclear medicine procedure to detect metastases/function of thyroid, the isotopes iodine-131, iodine-123 or technetium-99m is generally used, and for this purpose the iodide isotopes does not need to be attached to another protein or molecule, because thyroid tissue takes up free iodide actively. ❰❰

MIBG Scintigraphy

I131/I123 Metaiodobenzylguanidine (mIBG) Scintigraphy help locate and diagnose certain types of tumors in the body. MIBG is a substance that gathers in some tumors, particularly neuroblastoma tumors. When MIBG is combined with radioactive iodine (tracer), it provides a way to identify primary and metastatic (spread) disease. MIBG scans are helpful for locating both

Somatostatin Receptor Scintigraphy

By |2021-07-30T13:31:24+03:00May 16th, 2014|Endocrine system|

Somatostatin receptor scintigraphy is used to locate many neuroendocrine tumors. The used radiotracers can help in staging, restaging and treatment planning of these tumors. ❰❰ PATIENTS INSTRUCTIONS This procedure requires injection of a radioactive material. If there is a possibility that you are pregnant, please inform the Nuclear

Parathyroid Scintigraphy

By |2021-07-30T13:31:00+03:00May 16th, 2014|Endocrine system|

Parathyroid Scintigraphy is performed to localize parathyroid adenoma. Adequate localization of parathyroid adenoma allows the surgeon to use a minimally invasive surgical approach. ❰❰ PATIENTS INSTRUCTIONS  This procedure requires injection of a radioactive material.  If there is a possibility that you are pregnant, please inform the
