Cytogenetic Dosimetry: Applications in a Nuclear or Radiological Emergency

This course, based on the IAEA publication Cytogenetic Dosimetry: Applications in Preparedness for and Response to Radiation Emergencies (EPR-BIODOSIMETRY 2011), focuses on how to select and implement, in a standardized manner, cytogenetic techniques to ensure comparable dose assessments following accidental exposure to ionizing radiation.

This course targets biologists, medical technologists and laboratory staff performing biological dosimetry and medical specialists such as physicians, radiopathologists and haematologists.

The four- to five-day technical-level programme takes an in-depth look at cytogenic dosimetry and includes topics such as: the basics of biological effects of ionizing radiation; the basics of biodosimetry; retrospective dosimetry by translocation analysis; premature chromosome condensation analysis; cytokinesis block micronucleus assay; automatic analysis of chromosomal assay; biodosimetry in mass casualty events; applied statistics for biological dosimetry, and safety of laboratory staff and quality programmes.

Member States desiring training in this area should send an official request to the IAEA Incident and Emergency Centre.
