Hello again Sandy,
Thanks for getting back to me.
I'm reposting my earlier comment as an answer, below. As with all
material at Google Answers, you should feel free to post a Request for
Clarification at any time if you feel you would like any additional
information or explanations of the answer I've provided.
Please do not rate this answer until you feel you have everything you need.
You are absolutely right...setting up a facility to handle nuclear
medicine material is a big, complex undertaking. Again, I suggest the
services of a consultant familiar with this area would work to your
advantage in smoothing the process.
Best of luck, and let me know if you need any additional information.
Just about everything you would need to know to legally operate a
nuclear medicine lab can be found at the these two links:
Medical Uses Licensee Toolkit
Medical, Industrial, Academic Uses of Nuclear Materials Regulations,
Guidance, and Communications
The regulations are very detailed, and very specific. For instance,
regs on transportation are found in:
Part 71 - Packaging and Transportation of Radioactive Material
There are also numerous guidance materials, such as:
RG 8.7 - Instructions for Recording and Reporting Occupational
Radiation Exposure Data
NUREG/BR-0006 - Instructions for Completing Nuclear Material Transfer Report
The regulations are very complex. I suspect you would need to hire
someone familiar with the regulatory matrix to really help you get off
