It *is* interesting -- thanks.
.....aren't patients provided with instructions prior to release ?
I'm sure there must be more to this, than the typical radiophobia BS from
Markey & co.
PS. A couple of years ago, a colleague who had I-131 thyroid ablation
therapy asked me to help her calculate the dose rate to people in proximity,
because she was concerned about exposure of her kids.
I was able to provide a reference containing the calculation procedure --
the link to which was posted on Radsafe a few years earlier. Many thanks for
