Possible nuclear medicine incineration waste identified, Tl 201-thallium 201 which is widely used in nuclear medicine for cardiac perfusion studies. Cesium 137 and breakdown isotope from Zircalloy cladding from nuclear fuels-Sb125 Unidentified energies may be other isotopes of Cesium and significant Sn 129 which is further indicative of the Zircalloy cladding breakdown as evidenced by the Antimony, Sb 125.
