Abstract

In case of Radiological and Nuclear (R/N) emergencies, the early knowledge on the individual radiation absorbed dose is of paramount importance for sorting out unaffected subjects from those requiring medical intervention. Retrospective dosimetry by using biological and physical methods aims to prioritize the selection of over-exposed individuals for a rapid triage-dose assessment. In this context, the BioPhyMeTRE project focuses on the validation of innovative biological and physical methods allowing a rapid screening/triage of potential victims, by using inexpensive and user-friendly analytical procedures and devices. The biological method combines the two most standardized biodosimetry methods into a single one and the physical technique concerns the use of a low-cost, portable mini photo-luminescence reader for the individual dose assessment by using personal objects that civilians wear or carry every day. Next to the experimental work, the project includes training for the transfer of knowledge and skills among the partners, inter-laboratory exercises for the validation of the analytical procedures and disseminations of the results. The preliminary results of these activities are here reported.
