  • iodine
  • The vial has a cap with a septum through which the radioactive iodine solution can be withdrawn from the vial in situ by an oral radioisotope administration set.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)
  • One such radiopharmaceutical is radioactive iodine, which is administered orally via capsules or in a liquid form to a patient. (google.com)
  • Iodine-131 (131I) is the most common RNT worldwide and uses the simple compound sodium iodide with a radioactive isotope of iodine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Toxic
  • Historically, these communities have been overburdened by pollution from toxic waste sites, waste transfer stations, a sewage treatment plant, radioactive waste storage site, and Superfund sites. (nag-brooklyn.org)
  • Toxic chemicals like dioxins and furans, volatile organic compounds (VOC's) and elevated particulate matter are some of the potentially hazardous chemicals that may be released in the event of a major commercial/industrial fire. (nag-brooklyn.org)
  • Toxic Air Contaminants The development of policies and State regulations pertaining to the release of hazardous air emissions is the responsibility of the California Air Resources Board (CARB) which are implemented at the local level by various local air districts. (docplayer.net)
  • The mission of EPA's Federal Facilities Cleanups Program is to facilitate faster, more effective, and less costly cleanup of environmental contamination such as hazardous and radioactive wastes, munitions and explosives, or other toxic substances, and ready Federal Facility sites for reuse across the country. (epa.gov)
  • radionuclides
  • This includes anything from a simple compound such as sodium iodide that locates to the thyroid via trapping the iodide ion, to complex biopharmaceuticals such as recombinant antibodies which are attached to radionuclides and seek out specific antigens on cell surfaces. (wikipedia.org)
  • Using deep boreholes for the final disposal of high-level radioactive waste (HLRW) can take advantage of multiple geologic barriers as safety features and aims for the safe containment of radionuclides by containment-providing rock zones (CPRZ). (mdpi.com)
  • radon
  • DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / December 3, 2018 / Radon is a hazardous and commonly occurring natural gas that is radioactive and believed to be the second leading cause of lung cancer. (oilandgas360.com)
  • Bob Goldstein, US Nuclear CEO, says, "Solving the Radon problem was a natural for US Nuclear since we understand radioactive monitoring and measuring probably better than anyone in the construction industry and we provide some of the most accurate detection devices in the world. (oilandgas360.com)
  • You cannot see or smell radon, but it can become a health hazard when it accumulates indoors. (water-research.net)
  • When radon decays and is inhaled into the lungs, it releases energy that can damage the DNA in sensitive lung tissue and cause cancer. (water-research.net)
  • Radon itself is radioactive because it also decays, losing an alpha particle and forming the element polonium. (water-research.net)
  • Polunium is also radioactive - it is this element, which is produced by radon in the air and in people's lungs, that can hurt lung tissue and cause lung cancer. (water-research.net)
  • One of the problems with understanding the amount of risk due to a specific radon level measurement is that the risk statistics are based on an average lifetime (70 years) spent in an exposed area, even though the average American moves every 7 years, and is thus exposed to many different radon levels. (water-research.net)
  • For a large number of samples, the radon release was additionally determined. (bfs.de)
  • The radon release from building products is determined by the specific activity of radium-226 and other material characteristics determining the radon transport (such as porosity ). (bfs.de)
  • laboratory
  • Laboratory studies have demonstrated that murine ESTR loci are susceptible to germline mutations induced by chemical ( 8 ) or radioactive ( 9 , 10 ) mutagens, and therefore may be useful tools for environmental contamination studies. (pnas.org)
  • Many of the specific activities described in this section above may be delegated to a laboratory manager, or other person capable of carrying out those activities. (uvm.edu)
  • organs
  • These are introduced into the body by various means (injection or ingestion are the two most commonplace) and localise to specific locations, organs or tissues depending on their properties and administration routes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many contaminants that are highly soluble in water are excreted relatively quickly, but some, such as mercury, cadmium, and lead, bind tightly to specific organs. (learner.org)
  • cleanup
  • EPA expenditures-from these federal appropriations-of site-specific cleanup funds on remedial cleanup activities at nonfederal National Priorities List (NPL) sites declined fro. (gao.gov)
  • emergency response
  • Wildland Fire Hazard The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection provides a variety of fire protection-related services for locations within State Responsibility Areas and through mutual aid agreements with local emergency response providers. (docplayer.net)
  • fast
  • The method described in this article allows the fast, non-radioactive and reliable multistage tandem mass spectrometry characterization of oligosaccharides released from LLO of microalgae including the ones belonging to the Phaeodactylaceae and Chlorophyceae classes, respectively. (springer.com)
  • elements
  • Nuclear fission of heavy elements produces energy because the specific binding energy (binding energy per mass) of intermediate-mass nuclei with atomic numbers and atomic masses close to 61 Ni and 56 Fe is greater than the specific binding energy of very heavy nuclei, so that energy is released when heavy nuclei are broken apart. (newworldencyclopedia.org)
  • chemical
  • By contrast, most chemical oxidation reactions (such as burning coal or TNT ) release at most a few eV per event, so nuclear fuel contains at least ten million times more usable energy than does chemical fuel. (newworldencyclopedia.org)
  • type
  • The validity of the developed method was confirmed by the analysis of the oligosaccharide structures released from the LLO of two xylosyltransferase mutants of C. reinhardtii confirming that this green microalga synthesizes a linear Glc 3 Man 5 GlcNAc 2 identical to the one of the wild-type cells. (springer.com)
  • areas
  • Similarly, the Department of Defense (DOD) addresses hazards at thousands of contaminated areas on active and former military installations. (gao.gov)
