Dear radsafe:

If one plans to relocate a nuclear medicine lab temporary to a regular x-ray room. This lab contains diagnostic radioisotopes in the form of liquid and solid  such as TI-201,Ga-67, I-123, I-131, Tc-99m, Mo-99,.. and calibration sources. In addition,  no therapy sources greater than 30 mCi are present.  My questions are:
1-What are the main precautions to take in this matter?
2-Is the shielding for the x-ray room enough for the use of               nuclear medicine?
3-Is the ventilation necessary while there are no sources in a gas form?

Thank you for your prompt response and assistance.
