Located in the Acute Ambulatory Care Unit (AACU) this service offers short stay overnight treatment for thyroid cancer. Patients are hospitalized in isolation during their 48-hour treatment period. 

 In some patients, radioactive iodine treatment can be done as an outpatient service and no hospital admission would be required. 

 All patients who require radioactive iodine treatment, have to be referred to the thyroid program for a consultation by one of the endocrinologist prior to being scheduled for treatment.
