Insulin pump exposed to radioactive iodine.
Insulin pumps are not typically assessed for malfunction after exposure to significant radiation. We assessed an insulin pump kept for 48 hours on a patient on hemodialysis who required radioactive iodine ablation treatment for thyroid cancer. On download inspection, the pump showed normal function.
