March 3,1998

On March 3, 1998 I had a 4 hour thyroid uptake and scan.  The report says and I quote, “49 year old female.  Palpitation with tremor, anxiety and headache, TSH and T4 increased and the thyroid is normal in size.  The report goes on to say, “The 4 hour uptake of iodine 131 is mildly elevated at 21% (normal range 4-15%).  The gland has been imaged with pertechnetate.  This demonstrates avid tracer accumulation within both lobes.  No hot or cold nodules are identified.  The impression states that the findings are consistent with Graves’s disease.”
