Distribution of residual long-lived radioactivity in the inner concrete walls of a compact medical cyclotron vault room.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Compact medical cyclotrons have been set up to generate the nuclides necessary for positron emission tomography. In accelerator facilities, neutrons activate the concrete used to construct the vault room; this activation increases with the use of an accelerator. The activation causes a substantial radioactive waste management problem when… (More)
