dc.abstract.en The main objective of the present publication was to assess the reduction of internal radioactive contamination with $^{99m}$Tc among medical personnel of nuclear medicine facilities using generally available respiratory tract protection systems. During the current research project, four respiratory tract protection systems were tested by estimation of $^{99m}$Tc activity levels in blood samples collected from medical personnel. Medical staf were equipped with a disposable surgical mask, a half mask with gas absorbers, a half mask with aerosol absorbers and a half mask with gas absorbers with added Petryanov flter. The presented results indicate that wearing only a disposable surgical mask may signifcantly reduce radioactive internal contamination among medical personnel and improve their safety in the workplace. The best results of reduced $^{99m}$Tc concentration in the blood were achieved by the use of a half mask with gas absorbers with added Pertryanov flters and a half mask with aerosol absorbers, where the reduction factors were estimated at 90% and 80%, respectively. Respiratory tract protection systems should become standard equipment for medical personnel performing ventilation–perfusion SPECT lung scans. pl
