Title Radiation protection data sheets for the use of radionuclides in unsealed sources
Original title Fiches techniques de radioprotection pour l'utilisation de radionucléides en sources non scellées [in French]
Bibliographic information 1st Quarter 1995, No.158, p.85-100. 5 ref.
Abstract These radiation protection data sheets are intended for supervisors and staff in the medical, hospital, pharmaceutical, university and industrial laboratories and departments where radionuclides are handled, and also for all those involved in safety and health at work in this field. They provide essential data on radiation protection measures during the use of radionuclides in unsealed sources. The seven data sheets published here cover chromium-51, cobalt-57, iron-59, molybdenum-99 - technetium-99m, technetium-99m, iodine-123 and thallium-201.
