Ionactive Radioisotope Safety Data Resource

Selected radioisotope safety data resource by Ionactive. Resource typically includes radionuclide name and symbol, half life, most significant emissions (alpha, beta, gamma etc) with emission probability, specific gamma ray constants (where relevant), dose rates from point and surface contamination, shielding TVT and HVT for likely shielding materials, committed dose equivalent for inhalation and ingestion of radioactive material, monitoring and dosimetry, occurrences and uses and more besides.

Please use this resource for general education in radiation protection. Consider consulting a Radiation Protection Adviser (RPA) for professional advice if required.
