99m-Tc pertechnetate uptake in the thyroid measured with a scintillation camera: a parameter of thyroid function.

A 99mTc pertechnetate thyroid uptake procedure, using a scintillation camera and a data storage system, is described. After comparison of extrathyroidal activity in several regions below the thyroid, activity in the clavicular regions was preferred for correction of the thyroid uptake measurement. No pertechnetate uptake curve obtained over the initial 15… CONTINUE READING
