EURADOS - European Radiation Dosimetry Group, Annual Meeting 2017

Since 2002 EURADOS Annual Meetings are key elements in the agenda of the community working in the field of ionising radiation dosimetry. It has become a tradition to combine statutory actions of EURADOS with meetings of EURADOS Working Groups and also with events of general interest such as the EURADOS Winter School or a workshop dedicated to a topic of particular importance.

The AM2017 will take place from 27th February to 2nd March 2017 at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, KIT, Campus South in Karlsruhe. The meeting includes the 10th EURADOS Winter School "Internal dosimetry for radiation protection and medicine”.

10th EURADOS Winter School
"Internal dosimetry for radiation protection and medicine"
Thursday 2nd March 2017
Radionuclides inside the human body are associated to different scenarios of exposure to ionizing radiations. Occupational intakes may occur at workplaces where open radioactive sources are handled. Nuclear medicine procedures use deliberate intakes of radiopharmaceuticals for diagnosis and therapy. In emergency situations contamination of air and foodstuff might result in intakes of radioactive material by members of the public. Quantification of the doses and thus the health risks resulting from radionuclides inside the human body cannot be performed by direct measurements. The only available indicators for dose assessments come from the measurement of the activity retained inside the human body or present in excreta samples and from the activities of material entering the body (e.g. concentration of radionuclides in air or foodstuff). The interpretation of monitoring data in terms of intake and doses requires the application of biokinetic and dosimetric models which are provided and updated regularly by ICRP.

The 10th EURADOS Winter School is dedicated to the dosimetry of internal emitters in the frame of radiation protection and medicine. All exposure situations will be covered together with their differences and commonalities. A great effort has been made recently in the elaboration of technical recommendations for monitoring individuals for occupational intakes of radionuclides and in standardization (EURADOS TECHREC, ISO). The new ICRP publications on Occupational Intakes of Radionuclides (OIR) will be presented as well as recent developments in the dosimetry in nuclear medicine. The challenges and recent progress in internal dosimetry for emergency situations will be also addressed. Other important topics to take into account are the internal dosimetry in epidemiology and the new developments in the microdosimetry of internal emitters. The research needs in the field of internal dosimetry will be identified and discussed to be included in the new version of the EURADOS Strategic Research Agenda. All lectures will be given by internationally well-known scientists who are involved in the dosimetry of internal emitters. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
