SAIM: Sistema de Aprendizaje de Incidentes en Medicina Nuclear


In the areas of nuclear medicine, in which open radioactive sources are used, there is a relatively high risk of a radiological incident. In Costa Rica, nuclear medicine services report incidents in a log where a description of the event is documented. These are reports of each service, where sometimes not all the necessary information is contained in order to minimize the risk of a similar event. This work has developed a learning system for nuclear medicine incidents called SAIM, which allows information to be collected, shared and analyzed. The computer application was developed in the Java programming language and MySQL was chosen for database management. In SAIM, taxonomies and synoptic reports are used to facilitate data recording, avoid ambiguities and provide a complete incident reporting system.

Key words: nuclear medicine, computer application, incidents, reports, radiation protection.
