감시 림프절 생검은 유방암 수술에서 림프절 전이 상태를 알기 위한 표준 시술이다. 환자는 방사성 콜로이드를 주사 받은 후 수술을 받게 된다. 이 과정에서 검사를 하는 핵의학과, 수술장, 유방암 검체를 다루는 병리과의 관계자는 미량이나마 환자와 검체에 의해서 방사선 피폭을 받을 수 있다. 이 연구의 목적은 감시 림프절 생검 과정, 특히 병리처리 과정에서 받는 방사선피폭을 정량하여 그 안전성을 확인하고 병리 시설과 폐기물에 대해서도 방사선 관련 안전성을 확인하는 것이다. 대상 및 방법 : 감시림프절 생검은 방사성 콜로이드를 이용하여 일반적인 임상적 방법으로 시행되었다. 병리기사, 핵의학 기사 및 핵의학 의사의 피폭량을 열형광선량계를 이용하여 1달간 측정하였다. 또한 작업과정중의 잔존 방사능량, 흡수선량, 작업시간, 작업거리, 조직폐기물 및 병리검사실의 공간선량을 측정하였다. 결과 전신 및 손의 피폭량은 병리기사에서 각각 0.21 및 0.85 uSv/study이었고 핵의학과 의사 및 핵의학과 기사의 전신피폭량은 각각 0.2 및 2.3 uSv/study 이었다. 일반인 기준(1000 uSv/year)으로 병리기사는 년간 약 1100건 감시림프절 관련 검체 처리를 할 수 있었다. 각 과정의 잔존방사성 및 피폭거리, 시간으로 측정한 피폭량은 수술의사는 전신/손의 피폭량이 건당 2.47/22.4 uSv 이었고 수술장간호사는 건당 0.22/0 uSv 이었다. 병리실의 공간선량률은 0.02-0.03 mR/hr로 방사성 관리구역의 설정 기준에 도달하지 않았다. 폐기되는 검체 조직의 방사능은 거의 측정되지 않아 100 Bq/g에 훨씬 미치지 않았다. 결론: 방사성동위원소를 이용한 감시림프절 검사에 관계된 병리처리과정은 방사선안전측면에서 일반적으로 안전하며 별도의 안전관리나 시설 없이 이루어 질 수 있다. 【Purpose: Sentinel lymph node biopsy became the standard procedure in early breast cancer surgery. Faculty members might be exposed to a trace amount of radiation. The aim of this study is to quantify the radiation exposure and verify the safety of the procedure and the facilities, especially during pathologic process. Materials and Methods: Sentinel lymph node biopsies with Tc-99m human serum albumin were performed as routine clinical work. Exposed radiation doses were measured in pathologic technologist, nuclear medicine technologist, and nuclear medicine physician using a thermoluminescence dosimeter (TLD) during one month. We also measured the residual radioactivities or absorbed dose rates, the exposure distance and time during procedure, the radiation dose of the waste and the ambient equivalent dose of the pathology laboratory. Results: Actual exposed doses were 0.21 and 0.85 (uSv/study) for the whole body and hand of pathology technologist after 47 sentinel node pathologic preparations were performed. Whole body exposed doses of nuclear medicine physician and technologist were 0.2 and 2.3 (uSv/study). According to this data and the exposure threshold of the general population (1 mSv), at least 1100 studies were allowed in pathology technologist. The calculated exposed dose rates ( ${\mu}$ Sv/study) from residual radioactivities data were 2.47/ 22.4 ${\mu}$ Sv (whole body/hand) for the surgeon; 0.22/ 0 ${\mu}$ Sv for operation nurse. The ambient equivalent dose of the pathology laboratory was 0.02-0.03 mR/hr. The radiation dose of the waste was less than 100 Bq/g and nearly was not detected. Conclusion: Pathologic procedure relating sentinel lymph node biopsy using radioactive colloid is safe in terms of the radiation safety.】
