Occupational dose assessment of 64Cu-ATSM in a veterinary setting
64Cu-ATSM is an emerging radiopharmaceutical for diagnostic use in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and has potential utility for radiation therapy but to date there are no studies that assess the occupational doses delivered to workers in either a hospital or veterinary environment. This study consisted of canine patients that were recruited at the Colorado State University James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH).
