Treatment with radioactive iodine

Children who suffer a certain type of cancer are sometimes treated with radioactive iodine. During this treatment, your child is nursed in isolation for 5 to 7 days.
You can read more about this in the Radioactive iodine treatment brochure and in The radiotherapy room brochure. Please note both brochures are currently only available in Dutch.

The radioactivity in your child's body does not cease immediately after treatment. That is why you must adhere to a few rules for a while once back home. You can read more about these rules in the letter on the subject of Home rules after radiotherapy.

Should you need any further information, please feel free to ask.
