A SIMPLIFIED LOW IODINE DIET IN I-131 SCANNING AND THERAPY OF THYROID-CANCER CLINICAL NUCLEAR MEDICINE Lakshmanan, M., Schaffer, A., Robbins, J., Reynolds, J., Norton, J. 1988; 13 (12): 866-868


A simplified, low iodine diet was developed for outpatient use prior to I-131 scanning and therapy in thyroid cancer. Iodine intake of five subjects on the diet was approximately 50 micrograms a day and this level was maintained for four weeks. The diet required only minimal instruction to be followed reliably. This level of iodine intake may increase radioiodine uptake in thyroid carcinomas.
