Written by FoundHealth.

Possible Complications

Thyroid scans are associated with very few risks. Tell your doctor if you:

  • Have an allergy to medicine or food (including iodine or shellfish )
  • Are (or might be) pregnant or breastfeeding—the test could expose the baby to radiation
  • Take any medicines on a regular basis—some can interfere with test results
  • If you recently had any CAT scans , cardiac catheterizations , or other imaging tests that use contrast dye

Call Your Doctor

Call your doctor if you experience any unusual pain or discomfort.
