Table 2 Description of the Hp (0.07)P1 and Hp (0.07)P3 radiation doses received by the proximal and distal phalanges of the index fingers, respectively, in ten study participants, based on 271 paired observations; the ratios and the differences between these two parameters

From: Effect of dosimeter’s position on occupational radiation extremity dose measurement for nuclear medicine workers during 18F-FDG preparation for PET/CT
