The data for excretion of a 30 mCi or less dose is totally different than that of a 200 mCi dose. Less than 30 mCi are typically given for hyperthyroidism, in which case the individual still has a functioning thyroid gland.
Doses of Greater than 70 mCi are typically given for Thyroid Ca, and the patient has had a thyroidectomy, and you are looking to destroy a little residual tissue and mets.
And as someone else stated, it is highly variable from individual to individual.
