In recent days we’ve been answering specific concerns regarding radiation safety practices associated with PET imaging and F-18. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has a website that addresses specific questions concerning general information about the safe use of F-18.

A specific concern is the performance of medical procedures on patients who had received a diagnostic PET procedure earlier in the same day. This article from the IAEA highlights the fact that general ALARA practices that should already be in use by hospital staff would provide for a safe working environment around patients who have recently undergone a PET procedure.
