 Question No. 2. The nurse is writing the teaching plan for a client undergoing a radioactive iodine uptake test to study thyroid function. Which of the following instructions should the nurse include?

A. "You need to stay at least 4 feet (1.2 m) away from other people after the test because you'll be radioactive."
B. "You need to lie very still on a stretcher that is placed in a long tube for the scan"
C. "Don't take any iodine or thyroid medication before the test."
D. "Schedule the bone scans before your radioactive iodine uptake test."

Answer: C

Medications such as iodine, contrast media, and antithyroid and thyroid drugs can affect the test results and should be withheld by the client for a week or longer, as directed by the physician. During a radioactive iodine uptake test, the client receives radioactive iodine by mouth or I.V. in small doses and doesn't require isolation. During magnetic resonance imaging--not radioactive iodine uptake testing--a client needs to lie still inside a long tube. Any test, such as a bone scan, that requires iodine contrast media should be scheduled after the radioactive iodine uptake test because the iodinated contrast medium can decrease uptake.
