A thyroid scan is a specialized imaging procedure which helps you to examine your thyroid condition. The scan works with nuclear medicine to evaluate the way your thyroid functions. This process involves using small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose disease. The camera scans your thyroid area. It tracks the tracer and measures how your thyroid is functioning and detects the abnormalities. The camera works with a computer to create images that detail the thyroid’s structure and function based on how it interacts with the tracer. Through this thyroid scan your doctor can evaluate how your thyroid is functioning. Thyroid scans can help your doctor determine if your thyroid is working properly.
A thyroid scan can be used to evaluate:
- lumps, nodules or other growths
- inflammation or swelling
- an overactive thyroid, or hyperthyroidism
- an underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism
- goiter, which is an abnormal enlargement of the thyroid
- thyroid cancer
