Nuclear medicine/PET

Current nuclear medicine diagnostic reference levels

Adult diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) were introduced for general nuclear medicine, PET and the CT portion of SPECT/CT and PET/CT procedures on 1 July 2017.

Nuclear medicine survey

ARPANSA is not currently conducting an ongoing nuclear medicine survey. However, we have created a template spreadsheet to help facilities conduct local dose audits. The spreadsheet is intended for dose audits of the CT component of multimodality imaging and for the administration of radioisotopes where the amount of radiopharmaceutical delivered is varied depending on body habitus (for example via weight or BMI).
