Descripción

External irradiation in extremities, particularly in hands, is the most frequent radiological accident. These accidents have predominantly occurred among workers in industrial and medical uses of radiology. Under these circumstances, the estimation of the dose distribution on the irradiated body segment becomes prioritary. For such purpose, some physical dosimetry techniques are applied, such as the processing of ring thermoluminescent dosimeters and the reconstruction of the accident with an equivalent tissue phantom.
