Radiation Protection in Nuclear Medicine

Radiation protection in nuclear medicine is of fundamental importance. All proceedings and devices must comply with the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle, which means that the radiation exposure of patients and employees must be kept as low as possible.
Different isotopes are used in the different fields of nuclear medicine. The energy of the radiation these isotopes emit varies, thus there are several forms of radiation protection depending on the modalities.
