  • Performance of some handheld dosimeters used for gamma-ray ambient
           dose rate measurements
    • Authors: Zbigniew Pastuszak, Supakij Chuacharoen, Dan Tong-in, Pornthep Anussornnitisarn, Sasivimol Meeanpol, Stacy Huey Pyng Shyu
      Pages: 95 - 109
      Abstract: A study was carried out on the performance of some handheld dosimeters that are used for measuring ambient gamma dose rates. A CsI scintillation-based and two GM-based dosimeters were used to measure the absorbed dose rates in an indoor environment, inside a lead shield, on different floors of a building, in a desert environment and in a boat on the Arabian Gulf. The study showed that while some instruments provide measurements of ambient gamma dose rates, which include contributions from both terrestrial and cosmic radiation components, others show the terrestrial/indoor gamma dose rate only. Tests also showed that some dosimeters may fail to operate in the very low background radiation environments unless a radioactive source is used for the start-up.

  • Estimation of 238U, 232Th and 40K concentrations in rock and soil samples
           around South Purulia Shear Zone, India
    • Authors: Saurabh Mittal, R. Guin, S.P. Sharma, D. Sengupta
      Pages: 110 - 118
      Abstract: The first few measurements for low level gamma ray spectrometry for the delineation of U and Th along South Purulia Shear Zone (SPSZ) are reported. Estimation of <SUP align="right">238</SUP>U, <SUP align="right">232</SUP>Th and <SUP align="right">40</SUP>K concentrations in widely dispersed rock and soil samples around SPSZ has been undertaken using HPGe detector having relative efficiency of 50%. The maximum concentration among all the samples studied is observed in the sample close to the Beldih region, SPSZ. An attempt has been made to study the variation in the concentration of these rock and soil samples with respect to location from the shear zone. Central part of the shear zone is found to contain higher concentration of radionuclides than the samples from the periphery. This proves that intensity of shearing controls the activity of radionuclides in a sample, apart from alteration, metamorphism, weathering, etc. A comparison of radionuclide activities of soil samples in study area with other studies worldwide is reported.

  • Mitigation of workplace radon gas concentration using high-performance
           epoxy resin coating
    • Authors: Mohammed Husham Al-janabi, Mohamad Suhaimi Jaafar, Asmiet Ramizy, Khalid Omar, Yaman Walid Kassab
      Pages: 119 - 126
      Abstract: The indoor radon gas released from concrete was measured using a 0.65 × 0.65 × 0.65 m fabricated concrete slab room, simulating a workplace. The indoor radon gas concentration was monitored, and the remediation method was examined. Radon concentrations were monitored using Radon Monitor Model 1023 from Sun Nuclear. Results show that average radon concentrations reached 111 Bq.m<SUP align="right">−3</SUP> before remediation, beyond the World Health Organization's acceptable limit of 100 Bq.m<SUP align="right">−3</SUP>. Hence, two layers of high-performance waterborne epoxy resin TRU-GLAZE-WB 4030 coating were applied, reducing the radon concentration average to an acceptable level of 14.8 Bq.m<SUP align="right">−3</SUP>. Interestingly, the indoor radon concentrations were measured two months after applying the remediation and were found to be stable and within acceptable levels.

  • The lack of acute effect of low-to-moderate-dose ionising
           radiation on endothelial proteome
    • Authors: Reetta Nylund, Elina Lemola, Elina Eklund, Arvi Hakanen, Dariusz Leszczynski
      Pages: 127 - 137
      Abstract: Epidemiological studies have shown that moderate and low radiation doses to the heart area may result in an increase in cardiovascular mortality. It has been suggested that cardiovascular endothelium could be one of the targets for the ionising radiation-induced heart injury. We have used human endothelial cells as an in vitro model to study immediate effects of ionising radiation on endothelium. Cells were exposed to low and moderate doses of γ-radiation, and short-term protein expression profiles were examined. Proteomics analysis did not show significant changes in the examined protein expression profiles after the γ-irradiation in any of the examined conditions. The molecular level cellular damage was verified by examining phosphorylation of tumour suppressor p53 binding protein 1, which was dose- and time-dependent. Further examination of cellular proteome and phosphoproteome, using more sensitive quantification and detection techniques, is warranted and might reveal changes, which were not detected in this study.

  • Effect of three non-protein thiols on CHO cells exposed to low doses
           of X-radiation
    • Authors: J.C. De Luca, D.M. López-Larraza
      Pages: 138 - 146
      Abstract: The goals of this study were to determine whether cysteamine, β-mercaptohetanol and glutathione protect CHO K1 cells against chromosomal aberrations induced by low doses of X-radiation, as well as whether radiation protection is related to physical properties of those thiols. Experimental design included four different treatments: (a) control, (b) cells treated with 5 mM of each thiol, (c) cells treated with 100 mGy of X-rays and (4) cells treated with 5 mM of each thiol and 100 mGy X-rays. In combined treatment, all thiols were added 30 min before irradiation. Thiols remained until cell sacrifice (18 h). Maximum protection was afforded by cysteamine, the minimum protection was produced by glutathione while β-mercaptohetanol did not show radioprotection effect. These results are consistent with the electrical charges and chemical structure of the three thiols and might be explained by the lower or higher access to DNA.

      Abstract: The purpose of this of this research is to determine <SUP align="right">228</SUP>Ra, <SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra and <SUP align="right">210</SUP>Pb concentrations in the water and sediment of the São Francisco River, nearby from farms producing fruits in Petrolina City. Concentrations of <SUP align="right">228</SUP>Ra, <SUP align="right">210</SUP>Pb and <SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra in the water samples varied from <19.0 (detection limit) to 22.0 mBq.l<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>; <4.0 (detection limit) to 13.0 mBq.l<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>; and 12.0 to 42.0 mBq.l<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>, respectively. For sediments samples, in this order, the concentrations ranged from <7.0 (detection limit) to 35.0 Bq.kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>; <3.5 (detection limit) to 15.0 Bq.kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>; and 12.0 to 92 Bq.kg<SUP align="right">−1</SUP>. These results indicate that there are spots in São Francisco River, Petrolina, which have high concentrations of <SUP align="right">228</SUP>Ra, <SUP align="right">226</SUP>Ra and <SUP align="right">210</SUP>Pb in sediments.

  • Evaluation of occupational radiation exposure of cardiologists in
           interventional radiography in Mashhad CATHLABs
    • Authors: Reza Fardid, Mohammad Taghi Bahreyni Toossi, Mohammad Mehrpouyan, Mahdi Ghorbani
      Pages: 160 - 168
      Abstract: Several studies have revealed that interventional radiography procedures performed in cardiology departments are high dose techniques. In this study, effective dose of cardiologists working in hospitals Catheterisation Laboratories (CATHLABs) in Mashhad city have been measured during Coronary Angiography (CA) and Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) procedures. In order to measure the dose per procedure and to estimate monthly effective dose of cardiologists, Electronic Personal Dosimeters (EPDs) were worn by 33 cardiologists over the apron on the collar. Mean effective dose of cardiologists per procedure was equal to 2.7 μSv (range: 0.3-14.3 μSv) for CA and 6.4 μSv (range: 1.3-27.5 μSv) for PTCA procedures. Mean monthly effective dose in cardiologists was equal to 158.3 μSv (range: 8.3-1050 μSv). According to the data obtained in this study the effective dose estimated for all cardiologists was lower than the monthly limits recommended by International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP).
