recently created an internet-based forum or "e-Community" for
nuclear pharmacy. You are able to network with other
members across the country, share ideas and opinions, and
Accessing the nuclear e-Community is easy!
Just login at
www.pharmacist.com with your username and password and then

brachys for brief or short, refers to
electromagnetic radiation delivered via the
insertion of radioactive materials a short distance
