Effect of dosimeter’s position on occupational radiation extremity dose measurement for nuclear medicine workers during 18F-FDG preparation for PET/CT

Abstract

BACKGROUND The recent spread of positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET/CT) poses extremity dosimetry challenges. The question arose whether the radiation dose measured by the ring thermoluminescent dosimeter usually worn on the proximal phalanx (P1) of the index finger measures doses that are representative of the true doses received by the… (More)
