Quality assurance is a crucial part of all aspects of nuclear medicine practice. The objective of this publication is to provide professionals in nuclear medicine centres with detailed quality control test procedures for the scintillation camera and computer system.

Quality is an important factor for any product or process in medicine. It is widely recognised that the attainment of high standards of efficiency and reliability in the practice of nuclear medicine, as in other specialties based on advanced technology, requires an appropriate quality assurance programme File Size: 2MB.

Quality Assurance for SPECT Systems The objective of this publication is to provide professionals in nuclear medicine centres with detailed quality control test procedures for the scintillation camera and computer system.

Provides information on the implementation of quality assurance and quality control programmes for the measurement of radioactivity related to the practice of nuclear medicine. This publication is based on the QA principles of ISO/IEC It characterizes tissue, for example, as cancerous or not, but, at the same time, relies on quality assurance at all levels for hardware and software, as well as competence in technology, physics and medicine.

The manual endeavours to demonstrate the universality of nuclear medicine, its uniformity and harmony. It is well known that medical expsoure procedures such as diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy remains the largest source of man made exposure to ionising radiation and continues to grow substantially.

This makes the role of quality assurance (QA), an important tool in medical exposure : Stephen Inkoom. Marking the th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, The Division of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology hosted a group of about 90 scientists from 15 different countries to discuss the new trends in radiopharmaceutical synthesis, quality assurance and regulatory control.
