Internal Dosimetry - Enhancements in Application - IDEA, Executive Summary

Project ID: FIKR-CT-2001-00164
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

This project is all about one idea. Numerous methods are well known and established in laboratories which could enhance internal monitoring techniques - in principle. However, these benefits are not available to occupational internal dose assessments, because the applicability of such methods for routine application has not been demonstrated sufficiently. These enhancements in application of internal dosimetry - both in accuracy and speed - were the overall objective of this project.
Therefore the project aimed to provide faster and more reliable, i.e. demonstrably proven, monitoring techniques (both in-vivo and bio-assay) for better operational monitoring. The project did not aim primarily at the development of new methods. In order to provide enhanced protection in the field of internal exposure it is of potential importance
- to verify and apply new measurement concepts,
- to enhance existing measurement concepts,
- to improve calibration techniques for individual assessment, and
- to apply better monitoring and calibration techniques to reduce uncertainties in the evaluation of whole and partial body activity and individual intakes for dose assessment.
