5.10 Iodination Requirements and Safety

Volatile, radioiodine use areas are approved on a case-by-case basis.  For use of unbound forms of I-125 or I-131 over 1 mCi, the use of a charcoal-filtered mini-hood located within an operating fume hood is required.  The mini-hood serves to greatly minimize the chance of both personnel exposure and area contamination.  Contact EHS at 353-5389 for information pertaining to the use of charcoal-filtered mini-hoods.
