Título Occupational ingestion of P-32: The value of monitoring techniques to determine dose - A case report
Información bibliográfica Oct. 1999, Vol.41, No.10, p.878-883. Illus. 7 ref.
Resumen The internal dose of a P-32-labelled compound that had inadvertently been ingested was estimated using the International Commission on Radiation Protection (ICPR)-30 model. This metabolic model assumes that 80% of the material ingested is absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract because P-32 is soluble. Twenty-four-hour urine sampling over a 6-week period, coupled with daily whole body counting over the same period, was performed. An assessment of the laboratory where the accident occurred indicated that approximately 600µCi of radioactive phosphorus was missing. The total effective dose equivalent was estimated at 4.8rem (48mSv). This report confirms the value of using the ICRP-30 model with urinary measurements and whole body counting to estimate the radioactive dose received as a result of ingestion of P-32.
