Title Urinary 90Sr concentration in occupationally exposed and nonexposed persons in Austria.
Bibliographic information July 1979, Vol.37, No.1, p.163-165. 6 ref.
Abstract Results of a 2-year study (quarterly urinalysis) in workers handling low-level radioactive wastes are reported. 90Sr concentrations were generally 0.5-5.OpCi/l. Results were higher in 2 workers involved in accidental dispersion of waste material. Concentrations were below 2pCi/l in all non-exposed persons.
