Iodine 131 Therapy

Yodo 131

The service if iodine 131 therapy for the treatment of hyperthyroidism and both thyroid cancer and ablations is now available and duly approved by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.   Complementing this therapy is the full body scan with I-131 using the SPECT-CT scanner.  The images obtained with I-131 SPECT-CT scanner provide much greater accuracy than conventional planar studies, including those with pinhole collimator, due to the anatomical and precision that CT provides to the scan.
