Textbook Problem

One of the methods used to limit radiation dose to the patient in medical imaging is to employ isotopes with short half−lives. How would this limit the dose?

To determine

The process of limiting the radiation dose by employing isotopes with short half-lives.

Explanation

Introduction:

The main use of radiation dose is to destroy the weaken cell of the body which harms the human body and causes cancer. It has been used in limited amount so that it cannot harm the cell. Radiation dose is usually superintended in the form of high energized beams in the human body where the tumor cells are located.

In Radiation theory for a half life time of the radiation, the decay time of the isotope will be small. Thus, the decay time for short half live radiation is also small...
