Gene context of Radiation Protection

  • Wearing away of the TP53 pathway by chronic exposure to radiation may have important implications for radiation protection [22].
  • An ICRU report entitled "Nuclear Data for Neutron and Proton Radiotherapy and for Radiation Protection" is in preparation [23].
  • A TLD reader incorporating the techniques of photon counting and dc methods has been developed for radiation dose measurements in the range of 10(-6) Gy (10(-2) Gy = 1 rad) to 100 Gy for varied applications in radiation protection and for dosimetry in medical physics [24].
  • The results indicate that the potential risk of radiogenic thyroid cancer is very small when proper radiation protection measures are used [25].
  • This paper discusses these requirements, methods for meeting them, the process used by the NRC to change its regulations, a proposed rule on release of patients who contain therapeutic radionuclides, and some commentary from the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements that medical licensees may find useful [26].
