The effective half-life of radioactive iodine for (near) thyroidectomy patients was evaluated using an in vivo gamma camera approach. Five patients with post administered iodine for remnant ablation of thyroid were thoroughly scanned in vivo for one to four weeks. Derived data were analyzed in a MATLAB program to revise the ICRP recommended effective(More)
