Radionuclide Localization > Steps > Step 4

Step 4

The nuclear technologist should be immediately available in the CT suite with the radionuclide syringe at the beginning of the procedure so that there is no delay when the radiologist is ready to inject. The technologist should also have the standard supplies for disposal of the syringe, radiologistís gloves, field drape, and any other materials which might become contaminated with radiotracer during the procedure.
