The initial means and mainstay of thyroid imaging has been, and will for the foreseeable future remain, the nuclear isotope study utilizing radioactive iodine. Owing to the relatively easy accessibility of the radionuclide and primary role of iodine in thyroid metabolism, the iodine uptake and static scans can be utilized in evaluating both the physiology and morphology of the gland.
