Introduction: In nuclear medicine, the demand for a variety of radionuclides is rising every day. Radionuclides radiation doses to patients and staff are of high importance and it should be monitored and controlled in medical imaging centers. This study aimed to evaluate the safety principles in the Hegmataneh Gamma scan nuclear medicine center in Hamadan.
Methods and Materials: Dose rate measurement was noted in different regions of nuclear medicine center in 30 consecutive days at the end of each work shift. Moreover, the mean of dose rates were measured and noted in different rooms.
Results: The results indicated that the maximum and minimum dose rates of any work shift were 1.67 μSv/h and 0.13 μSv/h for hot lab and control rooms, respectively.
Discussion and Conclusion: The measurements show that the principles of radiation protection at Hegmataneh Gamma Scan center are confirmed in terms of quality and quantity. In addition, it is confirmed with International Committee of Radiation Protection (ICRP).
