Cabinets, Storage, Isotope
Definition : Cabinets designed for safe storage of radioisotopes during a relatively short period of time, protecting healthcare providers and patients from harmful radiation. These cabinets typically consist of a lead-lined (e.g., 6 mm/0.25 in) heavy metallic structure that may include dose storage and decay drawers (with leaded fronts) and compartments for flood phantoms. Some cabinets also have a thicker lined (e.g., two-inch) lead-lined compartment to storage high-energy radiation sources, including syringes for isotope infusion. Isotope storage cabinets are used mainly in nuclear medicine laboratories and nuclear medicine treatment units.
