  1. 1. The microdosimetric variance-covariance method used for beam quality characterization in radiation protection and radiation therapy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Medicinsk strålningsfysik (tills m KI)

    Author : Jan Erik Lillhök; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ionizing radiation; radiation quality; radiation protection; radiation therapy; microdosimetry; nanodosimetry; variance-covariance method; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Radiological research Radiological physics; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Radiologisk forskning Radiofysik; medicinsk strålningsfysik; Medical Radiation Physics;

    Abstract : Radiation quality is described by the RBE (relative biological effectiveness) that varies with the ionizing ability of the radiation. Microdosimetric quantities describe distributions of energy imparted to small volumes and can be related to RBE. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ethical Aspects of Radiation Risk Management

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Per Wikman-Svahn; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; radiation protection; radiological protection; nuclear power; nuclear energy; social issues; ethical issues; ethics; risk; uncertainty; value judgments; precautionary principle; distributive issues; justice; limits; prioritarianism; responsibility; egalitarianism; black swan; black elephant; risk management;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on the assumption that the intersection of moral philosophy and practical risk management is a rewarding area to study. In particular, the thesis assumes that concepts, ideas, and methods that are used in moral philosophy can be of great benefit for risk analysis, but also that practices in risk regulation provide a useful testing ground for moral philosophical theories.

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; radiobiologi; Kärnfysik; Nuclear physics; radiation protection.; 137Cs; peak-to-valley method; depth distribution; orphan source search; orphan sources; emergency preparedness; mobile gamma spectrometry; nuclear accidents; Nuclear medicine; radiobiology; Nukleärmedicin;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish I beredskapen för kärnolyckor är mobila in situ gammaspektrometriska mätningar ett viktigt redskap; vilket betyder att mätinstrument placeras i ett fordon (tex bil, flygplan eller helikopter) och gammastrålningen från omgivningen mäts under körning. I detta arbete har strategier och analysmetoder för två olika användningsområden utvecklats: 1) sökning av försvunna radioaktiva strålkällor, så kallade herrelösa källor (eng. READ MORE
