In this study, we focus on the estimation of activity concentration in rivers after radiopharmaceutical release scenarios from hospitals via waste wate treatment plants in Belgium, that will be used in the future for radiological impact assessments. For this, we incorporate the most relevant characteristics and conditions that could affect the fate and transport of radiopharmaceuticals. We take into account their half-lives, their distribution between solid and liquid phases, the volumes and activity levels, the discharge periodicity of the radioactive effluents and the flow regime of the receiving rivers.
