Abstract

The ICRP recommendations deal with issues related to radiological protection of man and the environment against the risks and damage caused by ionizing radiation through the dissemination of its publications that are accepted and implemented by national and international entities. This study aims to evaluate the environmental deposition of radionuclides used in nuclear medicine facilities in the City of Rio de Janeiro and a model will be proposed, at the national level, which aims to implement a radiation protection system for the management and exemption of radioactive waste based on ICRP Publication 103.
