Session 4 - Dosimetry
- Vladimir Mares (Helmholtz Zentrum Muenchen)
Dr Tatsuhiko Sato (Japan Atomic Energy Agency)
Recent studies on the dosimetric issues will be reviewed at the meeting. The review will be given mainly on the following 3 topics: (1) Calculation of the fluence to the dose conversion coefficients based on ICRP103 (2) Cosmic-ray dosimetry for aircrews and astronauts (3) Development of dose monitors for high-energy neutron fields Future requirements on dosimetric studies such as the...
44. Calculations of radiation levels in the service caverns and on the surface at Point 1 of the Large Hadron Collider
Zuzana Zajacova (Conseil Europeen Recherche Nucl. (CERN)-Unknown-Unknown)
The ATLAS detector is installed at Point 1 of the Large Hadron Collider. The underground infrastructure consists of the experimental cavern UX15, which houses the detector, and two lateral service caverns, USA15 and US15. The experimental cavern is connected with the surface by two large vertical shafts, PX14 and PX16. Calculations were performed with the FLUKA code to assess the prompt...
38. Estimation of Entrance Surface Dosess (ESDs) for common medical X-ray diagnostic examinations in Radiological Departments in Mashhad-IRAN
Mr Sasan Esmaili (Azad University of SANANDAJ)
Background: The British national radiological protection board (NRPB) introduced the use of diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) as an efficient standard for optimizing the radiation protection of patients. The physical parameter recommended for monitoring the (DRLs) in conventional radiography is the entrance skin dose (ESD) and methods for measuring it is clearly described in NRPB standard...
