Internal Exposure Control

Radiological control involves the protection of human population and its environment from the harmful effects of exposure to radiation or radioactive materials. The tasks that make up the responsibilities of the RCT include those actions used to minimize the potential exposure of workers and include efforts at reduction of both internal and external exposures. This lesson is designed to familiarize the technician with those actions necessary to minimize the entry of radioactive materials into the body and the basis for those actions. Major topics include:

  1. Modes of entry into the body
  2. Preventive measures, their use, and their basis
  3. Metabolism of materials and elimination processes
  4. Assessment methods
  5. Definitions.
