The decrease of early thyroid radioiodide clearance was determined in 33 patients with sporadic simple goiter, in 21 normal controls, in 38 hyperthyroid, and 9 hypothyroid patients. The clearance was measured between 5 and 30 min after injection of the tracer, 132I or 123I, using a single detector system or a gamma camera, respectively. The decrease of clearance was given as the difference between the thyroid radioiodide clearance (ml blood/min) from 5-10 min and 25-30 min post injection. The… CONTINUE READING
