Hi guys and gals,
Has anyone had a CT scan immeadiately following an I-123 scan? I need to have both done sometime this December, and I'm wondering what sort of scheduling problems there will be. I know that you can't have a CT scan with dye before an I-123 scan or an I-131 treatment. I had a CT scan with dye 5 months before my I-123 scan/I-131 treatment and my Endo had me do an Iodine/urine test to make sure my Iodine levels had subsided enough. I'm wondering if the I-123 will in some way interfere with a CT scan with dye. I spoke to the CT scan people, and they say 48 hours in a pinch but 7 days to be safe. I realize people are told different things by different doctors/labs, so I'd like to know what anyone else has experienced with this scenario.
