nuclear medicine

Nuclear medicine is a branch of medical science that is very important in the field of diagnosis and treatment.
It can be seen as a combination of imaging, radiography, and medical physics.
The feature that distinguishes nuclear medicine and other imaging branches is that nuclear medicine provides accurate visual information of the body’s metabolic processes and functions, while other diagnostic methods provide detailed structural and anatomical information.

Nuclear Medicine Imaging Methods:

Here are some of these methods:

Bone scan
Brain scan
Pulmonary scan
Thyroid scan
Pet scan


So far, we have come to know some of the shields of lead and protection:

Nuclear Medicine Shields

Nuclear medicine uses the nuclear properties of materials for imaging. In many of the diagnostic cases mentioned above, imaging is performed by injecting radionuclides and considering their accumulation at a specific location.
These radiant materials can cause irreparable damage if used in contact with the user and operator without protection.
Harmful rays such as x-rays or radiation emitted by radioactive materials do not pass through three elements:


Which of these three leads is much better in terms of availability and price than the other two elements:
Lead, lead sheet and lead rubber are used in the production of shields and ceramic products.

Therefore, considering the dangers of harmful radiation and the important role of lead products in preventing their dangers, we review some of the most commonly used protective shields in nuclear medicine:

Lead Brick

In many cases, shielding uses lead sheets (such as lead), but there are also cases where sheets may not be used as a shield or a better option. In such cases, there is a protective brick called lead, which we will discuss later.

Storage and storage of radiopharmaceuticals in nuclear medicine
Carrying Radiopharmaceuticals and Used as Carriage Boxes
Storage of irradiated waste
Cases where access to lead sheet or lead sheet is not sufficiently thick.
Equipment and installations that are in short-term or permanent contact with high-energy ionizing beams.

Lead bricks are produced by casting in high quality and expensive formats and are available in two types:


It is also called the lockable corner model (which provides maximum protection in this case).

Advantages of Lead Brick:
Easy and fast installation
Convenience and ease of movement
Full radiation protection
Characteristics of the new Middle East medicine lead brick:
It has 1 and 2 cm thickness and 2 * 1 dimensions
Lead with the highest purity
Use the best templates
Cleanliness and no pores on the surface

The following table briefly introduces some of the protective shields in nuclear medicine:
