Radiation Protection

According to the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP), the monthly limit for gestational dose-equivalent limit for embryo/fetus is 5 mSv p. 135
For a mobile radiographic unit the exposure switch should be a two-stage type? T/F False. has to be a dead man switch p 135
What is the most radio sensitive cell in the human body? lymphocytes p 136
The interaction between the ionizing radiation and the target molecule that is most likely to occur is the indirect effect p 136
irradiation of water molecules within the body and their resulting breakdown is termed radiolysis p 136
occupational radiation monitoring is required when is is possible that the individual might receive more than what dosage? one-tenth the annual dose limit p 126
What contributes most to the occupational exposure dose? Compton Scatter p 137
The xray interaction with matter that is responsible for the majority of scatter radiation reaching the IR is Compton Scatter p 137
a thermoluminescent dosimetry system would use which of the following crystals? Lithium fluoride p 137
All of the following radiation-exposure responses exhibit a nonlinear threshold dose-response except leukemia p 138
