What We Do: NUCLEAR MEDICINE & RADIOACTIVE IODINE THERAPY

Radioactive thyroid scan for evaluation of
hyperthyroidism

Desert Endocrinology maintains a fully certified nuclear medicine laboratory limited to the diagnosis and management of thyroid diseases.

Thyroid uptake and scans are performed to assist in the diagnosis and management of hyperthyroidism and nodular thyroid disease.

I131 (radioactive iodine) ablation is used for the management of Graves Disease, hot nodules, toxic multinodular goiter and thyroid cancer. We have been certified by the state to provide outpatient treatment of these disorders for our patients thereby eliminating the hassle, expense and risk of hospitalization to receive radioactive iodine therapy.
