Radionuclide information booklet: CC172-162/2017E-PDF

"The purpose of the Radionuclide Information Booklet is to provide practical information to aid radiation protection specialists at Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) licensed facilities. The Radionuclide Information Booklet contains information pages for radionuclides commonly used in the medical, research, and industrial sectors. These information pages may be posted at CNSC-licensed facilities as a convenient way to quickly find information. The information pages within the Radionuclide Information Booklet are organized by atomic number (Z). However, it is important to ensure the most recent information pages are being used, and it is ultimately the user’s responsibility to use the information appropriately. Radionuclides with long decay chains including multiple short-lived progeny are not included in the Radionuclide Information Booklet as their information is too complex to be captured within this format. It is important to also consult your CNSC licence, the Nuclear Substances and Radiation Devices Regulations, and the Radiation Protection Regulations for CNSC’s regulatory requirements as the Radionuclide Information Booklet does not replace them"--p. 1.
