Radioisotope Storage 1
II: Buildings and Grounds
The radioisotopes used in research and patient treatment are stored in 40 eight-foot long stainless steel tubes embedded in concrete and shielded with lead caps. Dr. Lester Skaggs, associate professor of Medical Physics, and Nurse Rosemary Haughey demonstrate how the isotopes will be stored. When ready for use these are removed and taken to the patient's room.
