They also note that there are no federal regulations regarding radioactive material in crematoriums, and the regulations that do exist vary by state. Arizona, for instance, currently has no rules requiring doctors to inform crematoriums about the presence of radiopharmaceuticals in recently deceased patients. Florida, on the other hand, prohibits crematoriums from burning radioactive waste unless they obtain a license from the government.
