Supported Procedures

Radiation safety is actively involved in setting up and decontaminating inpatient therapy rooms. Prior to dose administration, all surfaces are covered with durable protective material to minimize or prevent cross-contamination, as the patient’s bodily solids and fluids will be radioactive. Following patient discharge, Radiation safety will perform a comprehensive decontamination process to ensure all radioactive waste is properly disposed of and that regulatory limits are not exceeded. We currently provide safety services for the following procedures: 

  • Iodine-131 thyroid ablation therapy
  • Lutetium-177 therapy for neuroendocrine tumors
  • Lutetium-177-PSMA therapy for prostate cancer
  • Yttrium-90 therapy for liver cancer
