DRAXIMAGE® I-131 Diagnostic Solution

Assessment of thyroid function and structure through the use of nuclear medicine procedures represents one of the most basic, valuable, and frequently used techniques in the practice of nuclear medicine. Thyroid iodine-uptake values reflect early phases of the thyroid hormone production relative to overall thyroid function. Iodine uptake studies confirm that the thyroid will take up iodine and determine its capacity to do so.

Common indications for radionuclide thyroid imaging are to differentiate between various types of hypo- or hyperfunction, to assess nodularity and/or ectopic thyroid tissue, or to evaluate thyroid cancer and possible metastases—especially after thyroid ablation or surgery.
