This includes a cooperative mechanism through which the Department of Energy and National Institutes of Health can support radionuclide production and distribution, nuclear imaging, therapy development and transfer of these technologies into clinical use.
But recovering radionuclides requires a lot more than just soaking up water.
Radionuclide imaging using T1-201 is a useful non-invasive tool for the evaluation of SAS.
A total of 445 measurements were made: 10 measurements per radionuclide per detector, with five additional measurements performed for one of the detectors to corroborate that positive identification was possible if given extra counting time.
In contrast, the strengths of radionuclide imaging and angiography lie in their ability to identify regional coronary disease.
It has demonstrated that not only are radionuclide releases (excepting tritium) from CANDU reactors minor, but also a capacity to detect anomalous releases of radionuclides from both the generating station and other sources.
