  • iodine
  • An improved radiation dense container for transporting radioactive iodine and the like, including a cup-shaped base having a cavity with an opening that is sized to receive radioactive iodine in the form of either one or more iodine capsules or a vial of iodine solution. (google.com)
  • The vial has a cap with a septum through which the radioactive iodine solution can be withdrawn from the vial in situ by an oral radioisotope administration set. (google.com)
  • A lid threadedly engages the base over the cavity opening to substantially seal it when threaded in place and to allow the insertion and removal of the radioactive iodine when removed. (google.com)
  • The container includes one or more activated charcoal filters to absorb any gases given off by the radioactive iodine when sealed in the cavity. (google.com)
  • The present invention generally relates to shielded containers for the handling of radioactive materials and, more particularly, to radiation dense shields allowing improved handling of radioactive iodine and the like used in the health care industry. (google.com)
  • One such radiopharmaceutical is radioactive iodine, which is administered orally via capsules or in a liquid form to a patient. (google.com)
  • earthquake
  • Three of the Daiichi reactor's six units shut down because of the earthquake, while operations at the other three were out due to 'regular inspection,' the Tokyo Electric Power Co. said in a news release Saturday. (cnn.com)
  • defense
  • Tom Cochran, a senior scientist with the National Resource Defense Council, explained that this was likely done to release growing pressure inside both atomic plants. (cnn.com)
  • Similarly, the Department of Defense (DOD) addresses hazards at thousands of contaminated areas on active and former military installations. (gao.gov)
  • emergency
  • The CDW, which usually warns of a specific hazard and gives specific protective action, has a higher priority than the Local Area Emergency (LAE). (weather.gov)
  • The CEM is a higher priority message than the Local Area Emergency (LAE), but the hazard is less specific then the Civil Danger Warning (CDW). (weather.gov)
  • risks
  • Without a monitoring capability, DOE faces increased risks of an accidental plutonium release that could harm workers, the public, and the environment. (gao.gov)
  • measure
  • which is a statistical measure of the hazard to the entire off-site populace. (unt.edu)
  • But the method used to measure the damage may undervalue the hazard even further. (enenews.com)
  • content
  • Depending on the radioactive substance, its content in the medium to be analysed and the nature of the medium, various methods for analysis and measurement are used. (bfs.de)
  • power
  • RTGs utilise heat energy from radioactive isotopes, in this case 90Sr and its daughter nuclide 90Y, to generate electricity as a power source. (arctichealth.org)
  • measures
  • The following concepts are used as measures of the hazard existing outside the controlled plant area. (unt.edu)
