CURRENT RADIOACTIVE WASTE MANAGEMENT CHALLENGES IN NUCLEAR MEDICINE

JOURNAL: 2022, 18, p. 28-37

AUTHOR: B.Y. Narkevich

ANNOTATION:

The paper analyzes solid and liquid radioactive waste management methods implemented within radionuclide diagnostics and therapeutical units of Russian healthcare organizations. It evaluates the degree of compliance between the established RW management practice and relevant requirements set forth in Rospotrebnadzor’s regulations and ICRP and IAEA recommendations. It reveals a number of unscientifically based provisions that correspond neither to international recommendations nor the long-term national and international practice in nuclear medicine. It specifies a number of proposals on introducing relevant amendments to the developed regulations that are to be enforced following the “regulatory guillotine”.

Keywords: radiation safety, nuclear medicine, radioactive waste, regulations, “regulatory guillotine”.
