Pump-out breast milk and store it in refrigerator for some days before testing. After test is done, dispose milk for:
1 week if dose is 7 Mbq (0,2 mCi)
2 weeks if dose is 50 Mbq (1,3 mCi)
4 weeks if dose is 150 Mbq (4,0 mCi)
Keep-on pumping to mantain milk production.
Choose the shortest half-life span radionuclide as possible.
We do not have alternatives for Gallium-67 Citrate.
