Sign the petition to help reduce patient-related [radiopharmaceutical] extravasation injuries.

Patients for Safer Nuclear Medicine is a coalition of patient advocacy groups and corporate partners demanding that patients get the information they need so their diseases are accurately diagnosed and treated.

Extravasations are injections of radioactive drugs into patient tissue instead of the vein. Significant extravasations can result in inaccurate nuclear medicine scans (i.e. PET/CT scans) and can harm patients but are not required to be reported as a medical event. 

Join 31 member organizations in urging the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to correct wrong information and consider significant extravasations as medical events.

Global Vascular Access, LLC is a proud corporate partner of this clinically-related problem and is sharing this information on behalf of Patients for Safer Nuclear Medicine.
