The evolution of free iodine from a radioiodine solution typically used in nuclear medicine is dependant on several things including temperature.  We have found a major factor is the pH of the solution as well.  Nuclear Pharmacies in the U.S. have developed solutions that are buffered in such a way that the evolution of free iodine is very low. You may wish to investigate this aspect of your   inquiry in greater detail with the provider of your solution.
