Decay Tank System (DTS) for Liquid Radioactive Waste

dts-banner

Patients treated with radioactive isotopes, such as 131I metabolic therapy for thyroid cancer, the radioisotope is mainly eliminated via urine . The urine of the patient becomes a Radioactive Waste, and a Decay Tank System is required. Decay Tank Systems are also available for shorter half-life isotopes such as 18F and 99mTc.

decay tank system

Purpose of DTS: The radiation decay of liquid radioactive waste generated from the Diagnostic and Therapy Nuclear Medicine Department and its subsequent SAFE DISCHARGE.

What DTS offers?

  • DTS for Liquid Radioactive Waste generated in Metabolic Treatments with 131I and in Diagnostic (18F and 99mTc)
