Minimize unnecessary radiation exposure

While your work comprises a large part of your everyday life, your responsibilities often go beyond your nuclear medicine department’s walls. We know that when you are diligently taking care of patients, you also are taking care of others who depend on you.  The products we develop have more than just you in mind.

To help you confidently minimize radiation exposure, we offer a variety of syringe shields and an innovative delivery system for Iodine I-131 NaI.


Need documentation for traveling patients?

The Nuclear Medicine Patient Card offers your patients peace of mind after they undergo studies at your facility. 

The personalized card provides the patient a proof source that they have recently undergone a nuclear medicine procedure should a stop occur at airports, highways or other locations. 

Contact your local Cardinal Health pharmacy or sales consultant for more information.
