Abstract

Radiation dose exposure is extremely important to the mobile PET/CT Health Care Worker. Staff could get larger monthly doses than their contemporaries
working in static sites. This is generally down to wall shielding and a smaller
working area. As a result staff need to work together as a team, follow a system
of work and be very aware of every microsievert when dealing with their patients.
The InHealth staff working on the NHS PET/CT South contract have successfully
reduced their monthly dose exposures through diligence and imagination.
