German term or phrase: Aktivitätseinlagerung
This is hopefully the last question I have regarding thyroid glands:
"Es findet sich eine vergrösserte Schilddrüse, die linksbetont ist, mit ausreichend homogener Aktivitätsbelegung rechts(...).links zeigt sich(...)eine leichte Verminderung der Aktivitätseinlagerung."
As far as I understand it, this patient has an enlarged thyroid gland, the left lobe is larger than the right..but I don't know how to express the "Aktivitätseinlagerung/ -belegung" bit!!

concentration of activity
Explanation:
Presumably the throid is being scintigraphed with technetium 99. The radioactive technetium concentration/distribution (as seen in the image) is sufficiently homogeneous on the right [to be considered normal?] but somewhat reduced on the left.
