How long does the treatment take?

 

High Dose Therapy :
This is oral dose of Radio-iodine and stay in isolation room for 2-3 days. Before this dose is given small dose is given and Whole Body Iodine (WBI scan) is done to decide how much dose will be required to kill the disease.

 

Follow up :
This is every 6 months for the first 2 years, with WBI scan and Serum Thyroglobulin (Blood test). Some time Neck sonography or PET-CT scan may be advised, depending on the case.

 

Repeat High Dose is advised if WBI Scan and/or Thyroglobulin is ABNORMAL.
