REM transports high and low activity Radiotherapy sources and, when necessary, a Radiation Protection Supervisor in the Transport of Radioactive Material qualified by CNEN escorts the material.
The main radioisotopes used in Radiotherapy transported by REM are:
- Iodine 125-seeds
For this kind of transport, it is essential that the specific documentation accompanies the radioactive material, since inspections and conferences by the regulatory organs are possible during the course. This documentation is obtained according to the destination and origin of the source.
