Biological Dosimetry And Applications In Turkey
A radiological accident is defined as an event involving overexposure or contamination of persons and/or the environment by radioactive material. A radiological accident involves a sealed or unsealed radiation source and leads to an uncontrolled release of ionizing radiation or radioactive materials into the environment. Such radiation sources include X ray equipment, sealed radioactive isotope sources (such as 60Co, 137Cs or 192Ir irradiators) used mostly in medicine and industry, and unsealed sources used in nuclear medicine and scientific research 1.
