Abstract

Technological risks and nuclear energy make it imperative for particular attention to be paid to the techniques of medical intervention to be implemented in case of over-exposure to ionising radiation. It is important, therefore, that the European Commission pays careful attention to the way in which norms are applied in the case of over-exposure, the different types of medical intervention provided and the medical treatment of casualties. The report is made up of papers given by doctors, physicists, dosimetrists, toxicologists and experts from the Member States who met in February 1986 to discuss the problems of external exposure, internal contamination, dosimetry, radiological accidents and suitable forms of treatment. The conclusions focus on the development of expertise in diagnosis and prognosis, the necessity for close liaison between medical teams and research centres, and the need for an interface between physics and radiology on the one hand, and radiopathology, biology and clinical medicine on the other.
