Radioaerosol Administration Sets, Radioactive Technetium/Carbon Particle

Definition : Radioaerosol administration sets designed to administer radioactive gamma technetium gas mixed with carbon particles by inhalation into the respiratory tract. These sets typically consist of a combination of an encapsulated container (graphite crucible) containing the gamma radiation gas, a T-section with one-way valves, a mouthpiece, and connection tubes. Radioactive technetium administration sets deliver the radioactive gas when the patient inhales from the set where the gas was previously stored; they are intended for single-use because of the radiation content. The gamma ray emission images taken from the patient's lungs are used for diagnosis of existing and/or potential lung diseases (e.g., pulmonary emphysema).
