Epidemiological study to quantify risks for paediatric computerized tomography and to optimise doses
ID: 269912
Start date: 2011-02-01, End date: 2017-01-31
Diagnostic radiation represents an indispensable, sometimes life-saving, tool in modern medicine. However, the growing use of computerized tomography (CT) is a topic of concern in radiological protection, especially for children and adolescents. Children are generally more se...

CAST (CArbon-14 Source Term)
[PROJECT] CAST - CAST (CArbon-14 Source Term)
ID: 604779
Start date: 2013-10-01, End date: 2018-03-31
The CAST project (CArbon-14 Source Term) aims to develop understanding of the generation and release of 14C from radioactive waste materials under conditions relevant to waste packaging and disposal to underground geological disposal facilities. The project will focus on rele...

Basic Research for Innovative Fuels Design for GEN IV systems
ID: 211690
Start date: 2008-03-01, End date: 2012-02-29
Up to now fuel development and qualification has been a long and expensive process essentially based on an empirical approach. European experts currently have an adequate knowledge of conventional fuel manufacturing and its behaviour under operating conditions encountered dur...

Prospective cohort studies of children with substantial medical diagnostic exposure
ID: 212839
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2009-11-30
The growing use of diagnostic X-rays and of high-dose techniques (CT, interventions) in children and adolescents is a topic of concern in radiological protection. Studies of other populations indicate that children are generally more sensitive to health effects of radiation t...

REDOX PHENOMENA CONTROLLING SYSTEMS
ID: 212287
Start date: 2008-04-01, End date: 2012-03-31
Main objectives of ReCosy are the sound understanding of redox phenomena controlling the long-term release/retention of radionuclides in nuclear waste disposal and providing tools to apply the results to Performance Assessment/Safety Case. Although redox is not a new geochemi...

Actinide reCycling by SEParation and Transmutation
ID: 211267
Start date: 2008-03-01, End date: 2012-09-30
Actinide recycling by separation and transmutation is considered worldwide and particularly in several European countries as one of the most promising strategies to reduce the inventory of radioactive waste, thus contributing to make nuclear energy sustainable. Consistently w...

Combining epidemiology and radiobiology to assess cancer risks
in the breast, lung, thyroid and digestive tract after exposures to ionizing radiation with total doses in the order of 100 mSv or below
ID: 269553
Start date: 2011-04-01, End date: 2015-03-31
Recent epidemiological studies suggest that cancer risk after exposures with doses comparable to the dose limits for occupationally exposed workers may be larger than assumed by ICRP in the derivation of these limits. The value of cancer risk from such exposures and its depen...
