Question regarding uptake scan...

I had it done last week and I just got a phone call from the doctors and they want me to come in tomorrow to talk about the results.
I was wondering what the test is actully looking for?
I know nodules but anything else?
I am nervous as heck. is there anything i should ask either way good news or bad? Jen

Re: Question regarding uptake scan...

The uptake scan will also tell how your thyroid is functioning. They usually use it for Graves and nodules. If there is above normal uptake then it is indicative of hyperthyroid/Graves. Graves b/c its a uniform hyperactive uptake. Where if it were a nodule just the nodule would take up more.

If there is something wrong, yes, it's bad news, but treatable. Its just going to be a long battle...that more than likely never ends! It's just managed.

Good news would be nothing is wrong with your thyroid.
