dc.description.abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate radiation safety in two departments of nuclear medicine in Khartoum state. The study was conducted at Alnelein Medical Diagnostic Center and Khartoum Oncology Hospital (RICK.)The study was done to assess the degree of compliance of those departments with what is stated in the code of practice approved by the Sudanese Atomic Energy Agency. Measurements of the dose rate were taken using a calibrated survey meter in the hot Laboratory, gamma camera room, injection room and waiting room. The dose rate at these areas was found respectively in hospital (A ,1.19(,) ,0.04 ,0.03and 0.02)(μSv/h).and in hospital (B), (1.64, 0.04, 0.05, and()0.02μSv/h), whereas the standard stated in the code of practiceis(1.5,0.04,0.05,0.03) μSv/h. The results of this study showed that the level of radiation safety in the departments was adequate but needs additional attention and development in the programs of staff training and emergency management plans and the RPO should be given the full authority and adequate time to enable him to do his duties effectively& improve the status of radiation protection in nuclear medicine department. en_US
