SPECT-CT Scanning Unit


SPECT/CT Shielding

Is the shielding related to the CT scan machine or the nuclear medicine gamma imaging?

If shielding is needed, it will be due to the secondary radiation associated with the CT scanner operation.

Are radiation surveys required before clinical use of the room?

Both construction surveys and post-construction radiation surveys are available to verify the amount and location as well as the application of the lead shielding. These surveys are not normally required.
