Radioactive Iodine Therapy: What is it, Treatment, Side

Radioactive iodine (RAI) is treatment for overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) and certain types of thyroid cancer. The term “radioactive” may sound frightening, but it is a safe, generally well-tolerated, and reliable treatment that targets thyroid cells so there is little exposure to the rest of your body’s cells.

Radioactive Iodine (Radioiodine) Therapy for Thyroid Cancer

Radioactive iodine therapy cannot be used to treat anaplastic (undifferentiated) and medullary thyroid carcinomas because these types of cancer do not take up iodine. Preparing for RAI therapy For RAI therapy to be most effective, you must have a high level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH or thyrotropin) in the blood.

Radioiodine (I -131) Therapy for Hyperthyroidism

Radioactive Iodine I-131 (also called Radioiodine I-131) therapy is a treatment for an overactive thyroid, a condition called hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism can be caused by Graves' disease, in which the entire thyroid gland is overactive, or by nodules within the gland which are locally overactive in producing too much thyroid hormone.

Iodine, Radioactive Treatment Overview

A) In patients who have inhaled radioactive material, direct measurement of radiation within the patient is possible to guide therapy. Nasal swabs should be taken as soon as possible in order to determine the approximate radiation exposure; combine the 2 measurements and divide by 0.1 to obtain the inhaled amount of radiation.

Radioactive Iodine Treatment for Papillary Thyroid Cancer

The thyroid cancer uptake study can be utilized to determine the optimal dose of the radioactive iodine treatment the following day. In a papillary thyroid cancer uptake scan, the image will determine if there is any evidence of iodine uptake in the body. Approximately 90% of patients will have some uptake of iodine following a total thyroidectomy.
