Health Physics Considerations in Medical Radiation Emergencies

Miller, Ken; Erdman, Mike*

Collapse Box


Preplanning and organization can facilitate the health physics response in the event of a medical radiation emergency. Anticipating the needs will allow for advanced assembly of needed information and supplies that would be useful in effectively responding to such events. Annual training of emergency care providers and an easy to read and understand poster will be of great benefit in guiding personnel until health physics arrives. Major events also need consideration, in advance, as they will place additional demands on health physics.
