A Study on Control Status of Radioactive Waste Products in Medical Institution
의료용(醫療用) 방사성폐기물(放射性廢棄物)의 관리현황(管理現況)
This study was conducted to find out the management status of radioisotopes and radioactive waste products in Korean medical institutions during the period of three years from 1991 to 1993. The results are summarized as follows : 1. The rate of medical institution to the institutions making use of radioisotopes was decreased every year, for example, 18.11 % in the year 1991, 17.86 % in the year 1992 and 15.87 % in the year 1993. 2. The use of domestic made radioisotopes in the medical institution was increased every year, for instance, 89.68 % in the year 1991, 94.21 % in the year 1992 and 99.79 % in the year 1993. 3. 91.01 % of the half life of isotopes used in the medical Institution were two month below. 4. The rate of radioactive waste products in the medical institution to all radioactive waste products was increased every year, for example, 54.44 % in the year 1991, 75.36 % in 1992 and 78.49 % in the year 1993. 5. The rate of inflammable waste products from medical institution was 76.47 % of all inflammable waste products, and 73.99 % of whole waste products was from the medical Institution.
