  • Acute
  • The victims of the atomic bombings either died immediately due to the detonation or later as a result of the acute or delayed effects of ionising radiation . (bfs.de)
  • Acute radiation syndrome occurs when a person is exposed to a high dose of external penetrating radiation within a short time. (medindia.net)
  • risks of ionising
  • The studies on health effects in the survivors are still an important basis for setting limit values in radiation protection and provide knowledge on the health risks of ionising radiation. (bfs.de)
  • Current knowledge on the health risks of ionising radiation is mainly based on observations of the survivors of atomic bombings, especially on the results from the so-called Life Span Study, an epidemiological cohort study on atomic bomb survivors. (bfs.de)
  • radioactive material
  • Exposure can be from a radiation source external to the human body or due to an intake of radioactive material into the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • These fees apply to owners and operators of radiation generating machines, users of radioactive material, operators of low-level radioactive waste disposal facilities, owners and operators of facilities emitting airborne radioactivity, and owners and operators of certain mineral processing and uranium or thorium milling operations and their associated tailings or waste. (wa.gov)
  • Guidance
  • useful guidance in this regard is available in European Guidelines on Radiation Protection in Dental Radiology published by European Commission. (iaea.org)
  • EPA develops and issues general radiation guidance to other federal agencies as a reference to develop rules and regulations to protect public health. (epa.gov)
  • The HERCA Working Group 1 developed a harmonised European Radiation Passbook and a guidance document for workers travelling to different European countries where they work as so-called outside workers in radiation controlled areas. (bfs.de)
  • OECD
  • This meeting is hosted by the ANS Trinity Section and cosponsored by the Health Physics Society (HPS), L Organisation de coopération et de développement/L Agence pour l énergie nucléaire (OECD/AEN), and the Radiation Shielding Information Computational Center (RSICC). (lanl.gov)
  • burns
  • A clear attribution of causes of death to burns, injuries or radiation was impossible because the shock and heat waves also had to be taken into account. (bfs.de)
  • person is exposed
  • Understanding the type of radiation received, the way a person is exposed (external vs. internal), and for how long a person is exposed are all important in estimating health effects. (epa.gov)
