A list of related IAEA and WHO publications is given at the end of the book. 2. CLASSIFICATION OF POSSIBLE RADIOLOGICALACCIDENTS Although most victims of radiological accidents receive adequate treatment in the medical facilities in their country, some more serious cases might need to be trans-ferred to specialized centres in another country. This article lists notable civilian accidents involving radioactive materials or involving ionizing radiation from artificial sources such as x-ray tubes and particle nts related to nuclear power that involve fissile materials are listed at List of civilian nuclear ry accidents are listed at List of military nuclear accidents.

These specialized personnel are available 24/7 to educate, advise and consult on the medical aspects of ionizing radiation injuries and illnesses. In addition, REAC/TS’ Cytogenetic Biodosimetry Laboratory serves as a radiation emergency response resource where researchers use “the gold standard” of dicentric chromosome assay, as well as. A nuclear and radiation accident is defined by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as "an event that has led to significant consequences to people, the environment or the facility". Examples include lethal effects to individuals, radioactive isotope to the environment, or reactor core melt." The prime example of a "major nuclear accident" is one in which a reactor core is damaged and.

radiation accidents have occurred over the past 50 years involving radiation producing machines, radio-active materials, and uncontrolled nuclear reactors. These accidents have resulted in a number of people being exposed to a range of internal and external radiation doses, and those involving radioactive materials have involved multiple routes.   3. Treatment of acute radiation syndrome. According to the METREPOL protocol, the first 48 h after a radiological accident involving masses of people are crucial. 10 In that time period, the accident victims should be processed by an emergency triage system where the patients are scored on the basis of both clinical and biologic criteria. 11 If the radiation accident affects large numbers of.
