Radiation Biodosimetry Workshop at KIRAMS, Seoul, Korea
Biological dosimetry (biodosimetry) is an imminent part of the countermeasures in the aftermath of radiation accidents. Based on the quantification of markers in the blood of affected victims (e.g., dicentric chromosomes, micronuclei, or translocations), the method allows for a precise and retrospective estimation of the dose the persons have received. The National Radiation Emergency Medical Center (NREMC) in the Korea Institute of Radiological & Medical Sciences (KIRAMS) recently hosted a MetaSystems workshop on the implementation of Metafer for biodosimetry imaging automation. The workshop has been supported by our Korean partner Mirax Corporation.
