Iodine - an element that is essential for normal functioning of the thyroid gland, located on the front surface of the base of the neck. The thyroid gland is involved in the metabolism of almost all the vital organs and body systems.

  Radioactive iodine (l131, radio iodine or iodine 131) is one of isotopes of the most usual iodine-126 which is widely applied in medical practice. As well as usual, radioactive iodine is capable to get and collect in cells of a thyroid gland that allows to use it in diagnostics and treatment of various diseases of a thyroid gland.

  Treatment by radioactive iodine is based on ability of Yod-131 spontaneously to break up with a half-life period to equal 8 days therefore xenon, quantum of beta and gamma radiation is formed. The medical effect consists in gland radiation from within scale – and beta radiation. Betta-radiation provides to 90% of therapeutic effect. It is a type of radiation causes death of tumoral cages and cells of gland, providing that medical effect.

  Penetration of particles doesn't exceed 2-3 mm therefore it is a question of local radiation, and all treatment generally takes place rather without serious consequences.

  After treatment by radioactive iodine it is necessary to spend 5-7 days in an insulator to exclude possibility of harming people around. If the subsequent analyses show existence of malignant cages after carrying out a course, the course can be repeated to several times for their full destruction.

Treatment by radioactive iodine is appointed in the following cases:

  • If didn't manage to reach necessary effect at medicamentous treatment during a long period;
  • to Patients of advanced age;
  • If at the patient after expeditious treatment occurred disease recurrence;
  • to Patients who have accompanying diseases, especially warm insufficiency;
  • to Patients who can't conduct a long course medicines, and surgery makes risk for life.
  • to Patients who refuse surgery for any reasons.

  Before treatment in Israel the preliminary diagnostics whether defining well is carried out the thyroid gland of the patient absorbs radioactive iodine. In 3-4 days it is also necessary to stop reception of tirostatichesky preparations. Depending on the size of gland and speed of absorption of iodine for each patient the dose of radioactive iodine pays off individually.

  Treatment by radioactive iodine in most cases is well transferred. Complications can be a hypothyroidism or radiation thyroiditis, arising in a week after treatment.

  Results of treatment by radioactive iodine prove that this technique of treatment doesn't increase risk of emergence of leukemia, risk of development of a cancer of a thyroid gland at adults, doesn't initiate infertility and anomalies of development in children of patients.

  This method of treatment is completely contraindicated to feeding mothers, pregnant women, a resistance syndrome to tiroidny hormones, postnatal and subsharp thyroiditis. For children of application of this type of treatment increases risk of development of a cancer of a thyroid gland.

  Treatment by radioactive iodine in Israel is very effective and 95% of patients completely recover.
