This handbook is a reference source of radionuclide and radiation protection information. Its purpose is to provide users of radionuclides in medicine, research and industry with consolidated and appropriate information and data to handle and transport radioactive substances safely. It is mainly intended for users in low and intermediate activity laboratories. Individual data sheets are provided for a wide range of commonly used radionuclides (144 in total). These radionuclides are classified… 
Some aspects of radiation protection in radionuclide therapy departments
TLDR
Calculation of the attenuation of 131I gamma radiation by stationary shield showed that the thickness of walls and floors made of concrete 200 – 400 mm will ensure that the permissible values of the dose rates of gamma radiation in the air do not exceed at annual turnover of activity in the radionuclide therapy department of 3.3 · 1012 Bq.

TLDR
A set of 50 radionuclides was studied, focusing the attention on those ones mainly used in nuclear medicine, both for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, in nuclear physics laboratories and for instrument calibration.
INTAKE RISK AND DOSE EVALUATION METHODS FOR WORKERS IN RADIOCHEMISTRY LABS OF A MEDICAL CYCLOTRON FACILITY
TLDR
The risks and doses for the internal contamination of the radiochemistry staff in a high workload medical cyclotron facility are evaluated and the results are compared with data obtained from local environmental measurement of the radioactivity released inside the lab.
Radiation Protection of Staff and Public
TLDR
This chapter provides the basic physical characteristics, explains the fundamental principles of radiation protection and describes the key components of a dedicated radiation protection regime in nuclear medicine in order to minimise radiation exposure.
Radiation Safety and Dosimetry
TLDR
An overview on basic radiation-related quantities, definitions, and on patient dosimetry is given and values of absorbed and effective doses are provided for patients, the staff in the operation theater and in the pathology department, and for waste disposal.
Occupational Exposure in Nuclear Medicine
TLDR
Personal dosimeters of workers in the Nuclear Medicine Department (NMD) were processed in December 2007, when unusual values for two technicians were discovered and those technicians, who were operating unsealed sources in the NMD, were subsequently examined in the cytogenetics laboratory.
Simulation of the dose rate per activity of beta-emitting radionuclides.

    Radiation protection dosimetry
  • 2015
TLDR
The dose rate per activity was simulated for 10 beta-emitting radionuclides and for different activity distributions (point source, areal sources and a semi-infinite volume source) and a simple superposition of gamma-ray dose constants to calculate the total dose rate is described.
Dose and dose rate measurements for radiation exposure scenarios in nuclear medicine
Abstract Radiation exposure for the staff in nuclear medicine departments is inevitable. After application of radiopharmaceuticals the patient himself becomes a radioactive source. Consequently, we
Radon: a radioactive therapeutic element
Abstract This paper presents selected issues related to the use of 222Rn in therapeutic treatments. Radon is a radioactive element whose usage in medicine for more than 100 years is based on the
The patient as a radioactive source: an intercomparison of survey meters for measurements in nuclear medicine.
TLDR
The radiation exposure in nuclear medicine is evaluated by measuring dose rates in the proximity of patients and those in close contact to sources like capsules and syringes, finding that dose rates decline significantly with the distance to the patient, and with some restrictions, APD can be used as SMs.

A computer program has been used to calculate dose-rates at surface sites on syringes containing commonly used radioactive solutions for diagnostic and therapeutic injections, and agreement generally good is generally good.
Electron dose-rate conversion factors for external exposure of the skin from uniformly deposited activity on the body surface.
TLDR
Dose-rate conversion factors have been calculated for external exposure of the skin from electrons emitted by sources that are deposited uniformly on the body surface as well as selected radionuclides of potential importance in radiological assessments.
Data for use in protection against external radiation.
TLDR
The geometry of irradiation geometries with an anthropomorphic phantom relates to a broad unidirectional beam, or plane parallel beam, virtually of infinite extent, which would be approximated by a body suspended in a cloud of radioactive gas virtually infinite in extent.
Radiation exposure due to 99mTc and 131I manipulated in syringes
TLDR
Dose rates around and at the surface of disposable polypropylene syringes of 1 and 2 ml volume filled with 99mTc and 131I solutions were determined by thermoluminescence dosimetry to derive dose contribution due to β− -radiation from 131I.
