The imaging room environment has been surveyed during a hot activity phantom measurement involving about 70 mCi of F-18. The following table highlights the exposures of interest with the activity normalized to a 5 mCi F-18 FDG injection:
per 5 mCi F-18
|1 floor down||11|
Operating at 4 meters instead of 1 meter would bring the annual exposure from F-18 to 136 mR.
