Radioiodinated compounds and solutions undergo decomposition that may result in the volatilization of radioiodine.

Once inside the body, the iodine concentrates in the thyroid and irradiates that organ. A bioassay program will enable the Radiation Safety staff to monitor and determine the radioiodine burden in an individual’s thyroid. >>
