Mise en conformité des contrôles de qualité des activimètres en radiopharmacie au Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Grenoble

Abstract : Nuclear medicine treatment relies on the administration of radio pharmaceutics. The dosage of these particular drugs, given with an activity unit, has to be respected so as to avoid unnecessary irradiation of the patient and to ensure optimal images or therapy. It is necessary therefore to use devices measuring activity (also called activmeters) that are calibrated and controlled to deliver the correct activity to the patient. The decision of Afssaps in December 2008 concerning quality control in nuclear medicine establishes rules on controls that have to be carried out on these devices in radio pharmacy and nuclear medicine. The aim of this work is to set up a quality control system for activimeters in radio pharmacy departments, in accordance with Afssaps' decision. In this respect we took into account all the constraints linked with the department itself (problems of time and training) to have something perennial. A system using simple tools (Excel tables) and detailed procedures has been put in place, as well as a training slide show for users of activimeters to increase their awareness of the necessary quality control. The method that was set up has proved efficient because it is still used nowadays, fifteen months after being put in place, even after staff changes, in particular that of the pharmacy intern in charge of these controls. This work can be used to set up quality control systems of activimetres in other radio pharmacy departments.
