The Guardian today has an article questioning the possible leaving of Euratom. I am not wanting to make a political point - just to question what impact it might have on thyroid diagnosis and treatment. The answer could be "none"!
Does anyone know anything about the supply of radioactive isotopes used for scans and for ablation of thyroids? Are ours all supplied from UK sources? Do we, perhaps, have reciprocal relations to ensure supplies are available even if we have a transient problem?
The shipment of medical isotopes used in scans and cancer treatment is also said to be jeopardised.
