Abstract

Research in microdosimetry is concentrated on investigations of the spatial and temporal distributions of energy deposition in biological matter and of the underlying microscopic pattern of radiation interactions as well as on using the results of these investigations to broaden the understanding of the dependence of physicochemical, biochemical and biological effects on radiation quality. Consequently, microdosimetry should contribute to the assessment of radiation hazards presented by external radiation and by radionuclides incorporated into the human body as a result of medical treatment or contamination of the environment. A particular objective of the Symposium is to elucidate the understanding of the dependence of radiation hazards on radiation quality and of the problems of low doses and low dose rates. Therefore, the present and future applications of microdosimetry in the fields of radiobiology and - chemistry of radiotherapy, and above all the radiological protection will be discussed in detail.
