For dealing with radioactive materials, tungsten alloys can be used as an isotope container for safely storing the material. Elmet Technologies (formerly H.C. Starck Solutions) products have also been used in injection syringe shielding, storage and transport and PET scanners. High density tungsten is suitable for use in medical settings, research environments and for imaging equipment – anywhere where containing radiation is a key part of safety measures.
Hospitals and medical settings make extensive use of ionizing radiation for medical imaging equipment as well as using nuclear medicine for both imaging and treatment. Nuclear medicine is heavily reliant on the use of radioactive isotopes, so hospitals need to have suitable isotope containers to store and transport radioactive materials.
