Subject: Issuance of Information Notice 2002-19

Information Notice 2002-19, "MEDICAL MISADMINISTRATIONS CAUSED BY FAILURE
TO PROPERLY PERFORM TESTS ON DOSE CALIBRATORS FOR BETA- AND LOW-ENERGY
PHOTON-EMITTING RADIONUCLIDES," was issued on June 14,2002.

This notice was issued to all nuclear pharmacies and medical licensees to
(1) inform them of the lessons learned from an event involving multiple
misadministrations due to inaccurate measurement of dosages of
beta-emitting radiopharmaceuticals and (2) remind them of the importance
of conducting proper tests of the dose calibrator when measuring beta-
and low-energy photon-emitting radiopharmaceuticals and liquid
brachytherapy sources (e.g., samarium-153, strontium-89, yttrium-90,
phosphorus-32, and iodine-125).
