Abstract

Some contamination is observed in conjunction with diagnostic procedures, however the contaminating activity is very low. Although it is unclear whether the observed frequency of contamination in this study is typical of other hospitals, the study suggests that for comparable nuclear medicine workloads radiocontamination from diagnostically dosed nuclear medicine patients does not present a major problem for the hospital health physicist.
