radioactive iodine

radioactive iodine Posted by ghada S.

Dear Paul

As I understand that diagnostic radio-iodine scans are contra-indicated in pregnancy but may be undertaken if breast-feeding - stop breast-feeding for 24h. Avoid pregnancy for at least 4 months after radio-iodine treatment.

What advice can I give to a the patient  inadvertently exposed to radioactive iodine scan & dicoverd to be pregnant later on … Is TOP indicated??

thanks
