Highly radioactive fluids should be stored behind appropriate shields until they can be safely removed from the autopsy suite. After the body is opened, a second survey should be made to estimate the level of beta dose for 32P or other beta-emitting radionuclide. In cases of 131I administration, the thyroid gland may emit a sufficient gamma dose that it should not be touched by hand directly but rather removed with the aid of a long instrument.
