In prep for MIBG while we were in Australia we had to take Lugol drops.
As far as I remember it involved taking about 5 doses of very unpalatable drops with lots of water. In NY they use SSKI which appears to be much more concentrated and easy to take. (only 3 doses required)
Overall our SSKI experience was far less stressful that Lugols in the past.
Does anyone know why some hospitals are using Lugol’s vs SSKI? Is there any research to say that one is more effective that the other?
