The biodosimetric methods used to determine doses received after exposure to ionising radiation have limitations that are related partly to the sensitivity of the measuring instruments and working methods used, and partly to physiological and constitutional parameters which are specific to the human body. A systematic reduction of measurement times would allow some methods to be used even in situations where a diagnostic assessment is needed in a sufficiently short time. Optimising working procedures and selecting new indicators for both acute exposure and for chronic or extended exposure over time could lead to greater sensitivity and better accuracy.
