The thyroid is an endocrine gland that makes hormones to regulate many activities in the body, including metabolism. Diseases of the thyroid can cause the gland to release too many hormones — as in the case of hyperthyroidism — or too few.
According to the American Thyroid Association, at least 1 in 8 people (in the US) will develop a thyroid condition during their lifetime, and women are up to 8 times more likely than men to have a thyroid condition.1 As many as 60% of people living with thyroid disease are undiagnosed.1
Physicians may perform nuclear medicine procedures that use radioactive iodine to help diagnose and treat thyroid disorders, such as hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer. Radioactive iodine is commonly used to destroy residual thyroid tissue or thyroid cancer cells that have metastasized, following the surgical removal of the thyroid.
Jubilant DraxImage maintains an unwavering commitment to provide consistent access to pharmaceutical-grade radioactive iodine (I-131) that is manufactured in accordance to strict quality standards.
