Quality assurance for radioactivity measurement in nuclear medicine
International Atomic Energy Agency, Nov 30, 2006 - Technology & Engineering - 81 pages
This publication provides information on the implementation of quality assurance/quality control programmes for the measurement of radioactivity related to the practice of nuclear medicine. It is based on the QA principles in ISO/IEC 17025, which describes requirements that testing and calibration laboratories must meet to demonstrate that they have a quality system in place and are technically competent. This report provides information specific to implementing that standard at both the end user (clinic) and secondary radioactivity standards laboratory levels. If adopted to its greatest extent, it will provide the user with all the information (including measurement procedures) necessary to carry out most tasks associated with routine radioactivity measurement, including maintaining the necessary documentation.--Publisher's description.
