This document focuses on monitoring the activity concentrations of radioactive gases. They allow the calculation of the activity releases, in the gaseous effluent discharge from facilities producing positron emitting radionuclides and radiopharmaceuticals. Such facilities produce short-lived radionuclides used for medical purposes or research and can release gases typically including, but not limited to 18F, 11C, 15O and 13N. These facilities include accelerators, radiopharmacies, hospitals and ...view more

ISO 19361:2017 applies to liquid scintillation counters and requires the preparation of a scintillation source obtained by mixing the test sample and a scintillation cocktail. The test sample can be liquid (aqueous or organic), or solid (particles or filter or planchet). ISO 19361:2017describes the conditions for measuring the activity of beta emitter radionuclides by liquid scintillation counting[14][15]. The choice of the test method using liquid scintillation counting involves the considerati...view more

ISO 18310-1:2017 specifies suitable methods for the measurement of ambient dose equivalent rate at a distance from the patient treated with radioiodine to ablate the thyroid. For this purpose, direct measurement of the ambient dose equivalent rate due to the inpatients using an ionization chamber (or other suitable devices) may be employed. ISO 18310-1:2017 addresses the measurement methods, the calibration of ionization chamber and the uncertainty estimation for the measurement of the ambient d...view more
