Title: Simple method for the air monitoring of xenon-133. [In restricted areas of nuclear medical facilities]

Abstract

A simple and inexpensive method to monitor the air for /sup 133/Xe is described. The procedure requires only standard 10-cc evacuated tubes, a scintillation well counter, and a dose calibrator--standard equipment in most nuclear medicine laboratories. Air contamination in the range of the maximum permissible concentration in restricted areas (10pCi/cc) can be detected easily by this technique.
