Abstract After 131I radioablative treatment, a 51-y-old woman underwent whole-body (131)I scanning, which revealed intense uptake along the periphery of the skull. The patient disclosed that she had not washed her hair because she had obtained a new hairstyle between the 131I treatment and the scan. The intense uptake along the periphery of the skull represented radioactive physiologic accumulation at the patient's scalp.
