EURADOS Intercomparison on Compartmental Model for 18F-FDG Developed by Hays and Segall

Wei Bo Li, David Broggio, Augusto Giussani, Tomáš Vrba, Kerstin Hürkamp, Alexandra Kamp, Dietmar Noßke, Lara Struelens & Peter Covens
Abstract: This report was originated from the analysis of the results of a joint EURADOS-EANM project about the assessment of the external radiation dose rate to comforters and caregivers exposed to patients undergoing nuclear medical diagnostics and therapy. The compartmental model for 18F-FDG developed by Hays and Segall in 1999 was applied by EURADOS members for predicting the time activity curves (TAC) in the source organs and tissues, and the urinary excretion. Inconsistencies have been...

InterComparison on Internal DOSE Assessment – ICIDOSE 2017 Analysing the intercomparison results

Carlo Maria Castellani, Andor Andrasi, Augusto Giussani, Tamas Pázmándi, Gareth Roberts & George Etherington
Abstract: Internal dose assessment often requires complex processes and judgements. “Technical Recommendations for Monitoring Individuals for Occupational Intakes of Radionuclides” (TECHREC) was developed during 2014 to 2016 as a tool for internal dosimetrists. The TECHREC recommendations have been publishedin the Radiation Protection document series of the European Commission as document RP188 (EC 2018). They aim to encourage harmonisation, to present a complete account of the principles of individual monitoring and internal dosimetry, and to provide...

12th EURADOS Winter School Radon: Dosimetry, Metrology and Regulation

Arturo Vargas, Annette Röttger, James W. Marsh, Pawel Olko, Martin Dubslaff, Marta García-Talavera, Claudia Grossi, Werner Hofmann, Estelle Rage, Krystian Skubacz & Hannah Wiedner
Abstract: The COUNCIL DIRECTIVE 2013/59/EURATOM of 5 December 2013 laying down basic safety standards for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation addresses radon at workplaces and at homes: Radon is directly addressed in the Basic Safety Standards Directive through Article 54 concerning workplace radon levels, Article 74 concerning indoor radon levels, and Article 103 for the national action plan. The new directive brings significant changes, with respect to the former Directive...

IDEAS Guidelines (Version 2) for the Estimation of Committed Doses from Incorporation Monitoring Data

C.M. Castellani, J.W. Marsh, C. Hurtgen, E. Blanchardon, P. Berard, A. Giussani & M.A. Lopez
ABstract: Doses from intakes of radionuclides cannot be measured but must be assessed from monitoringdata, such as whole body, urine or faecaldata. Such assessments require applicationofbiokinetic and dosimetric models, and the assessor may well have to make assumptions about factors such as the pattern of intake and properties of the material. Intercomparison exercises (Doerfel 2000) have shown a wide range in doses that can be obtained from the same data set as a result of...

ORAMED: Optimization of Radiation Protection of Medical Staff

F. Vanhavere, E. Carinou, G. Gualdrini, I. Clairand, M. Sans Merce, M. Ginjaume, D. Nikodemova, J. Jankowski, J.-M. Bordy, A. Rimpler, S. Wach, P. Martin, L. Struelens, S. Krim, C. Koukorava, P. Ferrari, F. Mariotti, E. Fantuzzi, L. Donadille, C. Itié, N. Ruiz, A. Carnicer, M. Fulop, J. Domienik & M. Brodecki
Abstract: The medical staff performing interventional cardiology and radiology (IC/IR) procedures stand close to the patient and thus close to the primary radiation beam. Although they wear a lead apron and thyroid collar, their hands, legs and eyes are not protected. Therefore, these parts could receive significantly high doses. Moreover, thedose ranges for the same kind of procedures vary a lot, as many factors affect extremity and eye lens doses. Additionally, there is evidence that...
