Abstract: 

Today the radioactive wastes produced in different sections nuclear medicine disciplines forms a significant part of the produced nuclear wastes. The issue of nuclear wastes production has been considered by the mankind since the discovery of radioactive materials. However, certain consideration on the same has been after discovering the fission process and the increasing application of radio-isotopes in the agricultural, industrial, research sections as well as the mankind\'s extensive and increasing utilization of the radio-pharmacy in various medical disciplines; so that today the increasing utilization orientation of the nuclear techniques for the diseases diagnosis and treatment has caused that the level of the produced radioactive wastes in such section to be subjected to an ascending trend. Whereas due to the radioactivity the radioactive wastes produced in the nuclear medicine are hazardous for both the man\'s life and the environment, thus the issue of being well introduced to and having enough cognition with respect to such wastes and eventually the categorization, separation, and their safe disposal operations are mandatory and requires special consideration for such issue. Due to the importance of the issue, it has been tried in this article that a certain significance and consideration to such wastes is studied, apart from introduction and presentation of the categories and mentioning the various types of the radioactive wastes produced in the field of nuclear medicine.
