DCEG private investigators in the Dosimetry Unit of the Radiation Epidemiology Branch conduct dosimetry research in partnership with branch epidemiologists and statisticians. In order to sustain epidemiological studies of medical radiation and cancer risk, DCEG dosimetry researchers are developing more exact techniques to estimate radiation dosages from diagnostic radiologic assessments, such as computed tomography scans, radiography or fluoroscopically-guided interventional procedures, and nuclear medication examinations. They are additionally examining just how to estimate radiation dosages to normal tissues from radiological cancer treatments, consisting of exterior radiation treatments and therapeutic nuclear medication treatments, in order to better support researches of 2nd cancers and their possible causes. There are an approximated 1. 5 million radiation employees in the United States, and questions remain about ideal radiation security approaches for drawn-out low-dose job-related radiation exposures. DCEG dosimetry researchers in the REB are developing approaches to more precisely estimate organ dose and evaluate unpredictabilities for radiation employees revealed to clinical radiation procedures and associated with radiation crashes.
