Positron Emission Tomography Contributions by mat.j.collins

I was interested in your question and did some quick internet research to see if there have been any studies to confirm effects of working around a PET imaging place. I found no confirmation of vertigo, loss of hearing, or balance issues being a risk related to PET exposure. The most relevant research I found was on Technologists exposure when administering PET doses (available here: http://www.scielo.br/pdf/babt/v50nspe/a16v50ns.pdf). This article mentions the importance of shielding and proper containing of radioactive particles in order to minimize exposure.
