Description: A comparative study of the metabolism of /sup 129/I and /sup 99m/Tc in the thyroid was made. Thirty-minute uptake curves were determined for 26 patients and comparison images were obtained at 30 minutes With /sup 99m/Tc and at 30 minutes and 24 hours with /sup 123/I. Both radionuclides can be used to advantage in assessing thyroid function and anatomy. The reasonable cost of /sup 123/I adds to its clinical value. (HLW)
