    Internal dose assessment is covered in detail. The discussion covers key points regarding uranium characteristics, chemical and radiological damage to body tissues from HEU exposure, and resources available for assistance with a case of radiological contamination. This information adds to the limited medical literature on this topic and provides a valuable reference for medical personnel when dealing with this uncommon problem. Radiation is energy that comes from a source and travels through space and may be able to penetrate various materials. Light, radio, and microwaves are types of radiation that are called nonionizing. The kind of radiation discussed in this document is called ionizing radiation because it can produce charged particles (ions) in matter.

    Contemporary Health Physics, Problems and Solutions by Joseph John Bevelacqua, Wisconsin Electric Power Company. This comprehensive book gives a detailed presentation of the broad spectrum of the health physics profession including basic radiation fundamentals, external and internal dosimetry, and the biological effects of radiation. COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle .

    Review ¾List the three methods of reducing your exposure/dose: ¾Intensity decreases _____ with the square of the distance from the source due only to the change in _____. H – Introductory Health Physics Slide 31 ¾Using the inverse square law, calculate the dose rate at 4 feet away from a point source if the dose rate is originally R/hr at 2 feet. SUMMARY Internal contamination with radioactive material can expose patients to radiation leading to short- and long-term clinical consequences. After the patient’s emergency conditions are addressed and the skin is decontaminated, the treating physicians assess the amount of radioactive material that has been by: 8.

As a result, the biological half-life significantly influences the effective half-life and the overall dose from internal contamination. If a radioactive compound with radioactive half-life (t 1/2) is cleared from the body with a biological half-life t b, the effective half-life (t e) is given by the expression: As can be seen, the biological mechanisms always decreases the overall dose from.
