Safe Handling of Radioactive Isotopes in Medical Practice. a great service for her medical colleagues by writing this valuable reference guide for anyone involved in the use of radioisotopes in medical practice. The book consists of eight chapters dealing with such problems as the nature of radioactivity; diagnostic and therapeutic uses.

With the growing application of radioactive materials in medical practice, this short book on the safe handling of radioactive isotopes is of great value. Although it is not intended as a complete manual on radiation safety but merely as a supplement to the work of the radiation protection officer, it contains much useful : Joseph Royal.

book. The book consists of eight chapters dealing with such problems as the nature of radioactivity; diagnostic and therapeutic uses of radioisotopes; patient care instructions following administration of radioisotopes and precautions in the hospital and the "hot" laboratory.

Introduction. When used in accordance with instructions, radioactive materials can be used safely in the environment. The general public is restricted from unnecessary radiation exposure during hydroprobe use, storage, and transportation by virtue of the operating procedures, locked storage, transportation limitations, and legal restrictions imposed by State and Federal regulations.

Provides an introduction to the use of radioactivity in the bioscience laboratory. The text covers general aspects of radioactivity, methods for the detection of radioactivity, radioisotope protocols used to study key cellular processes, and a summary of legislative requirements in the US and European Union.

The manual does not appear to distinguish between trivial and important sources in setting up procedures. SAFE HANDLING OF RADIOACTIVE ISOTOPES I. General Considerations 1. Scope of This Handbook Prior to World War II the use of radioisotopes was essentially limited to a few locations having access to cyclo¬ tron-induced activities.

The addition of pile-induced activi¬ ties, either as fission products or as special irradiations, has. This booklet offers detailed and specific instructions for the handling of both sealed and unsealed sources of ionizing radiation.

The importance of organizing, planning, monitoring, and record-keeping is stressed in the introduction. Valuable technical hints are given as to shielding, design of.

Cloutier, C.P. Dalton. Most rules and suggestions for the safe usage of radioisotopes are simply an extension of the safe laboratory practices that you should observe when handling any potentially dangerous chemical.

Radioactivity has the added hazard in that it is invisible; spills and leaks are not readily apparent unless one specifically checks for them.
