An automated method for evaluation of the thyroid uptake of 99mTc-pertechnetate.

Abstract

A method for evaluating the thyroid uptake function, based on the work of De Garreta, Williams, Glass, Atkins, Higgins et al., was developed using 99mTc-pertechnetate and a scintillation camera connected to a minicomputer system. The method has the advantages of a single visit, a low-dose examination, and the reliability of a full automated technique. The… (More)
