Potassium Perchlorate Dosing Guidelines

By |2022-08-09T13:21:13+03:00May 19th, 2022|Guidelines|

About Potassium perchlorate is an inorganic salt with the chemical formula KClO4. It is a strong oxidizer with less solubility in alkali metal perchlorate. Potassium perchlorate acts as an inhibitor of iodine uptake by the thyroid gland and reduces the production of thyroid hormones. During the last fifty years, specifically the late fifties

Potassium Iodate Dosing Guideline

About Potassium iodate (KIO3) is a compound used to protect the thyroid gland from radioactive iodine by saturating it with stable iodine a few hours before or after exposure. Potassium iodide (KI) is the compound most commonly used to protect the thyroid gland from radioactive iodine. However, potassium iodate (KIO3) remains one of

Potassium Iodide Dosing Guideline

About KI (potassium iodide) is a salt of stable (non-radioactive) iodine that can help limit radioactive iodine absorption by the thyroid gland, sparing it from radiation damage. What is the mechanism of action of KI (potassium iodide)? The efficacy of KI as a selective inhibitor of thyroid radioiodine absorption is well known. When

Molecular Breast Imaging

The goal of Molecular Breast Imaging is to detect breast malignancies. The procedure starts with intravenous administration of a radioactive material (99mTc-sestamibi). Then, imaging begins after 5–10 minutes with a special gamma camera. The imaging is similar to mammogram where you will be seated on a chair facing the gamma camera. Then, a
