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
