Courtesy of the American College of Radiology, Diagnostic Imaging Services shares a three and one-half minute presentation about therapy offered at DIS for the treatment of hyperthyroidism, Grave’s disease or toxic goiter.

The thyroid is a gland in the neck that produces two hormones that regulate all aspects of the body’s metabolism, the chemical process of converting food into energy. When a thyroid gland is overactive, it produces too much of these hormones, accelerating the metabolism.

Treatment for hyperthyroidism is almost always done on an outpatient basis because the dose required is relatively small.

These therapies are completed at our Women’s & Advanced Imaging Center in Metairie. Call 504-883-5999 or 985-641-2390 to schedule a visit. Or, click here to submit a request to visit us in Metairie or at any of our locations.
