9780080422039: ICRP Publication 62: Radiological Protection in Biomedical Research

In recent years much progress has been made in radiological methods, in dosimetry, and in the knowledge of radiation effects. The ICRP has increased its risk estimates, and in addition, more extensiveinforrnationhasbecomeavailableon the effectof ageat exposure,on genderdifferences, on the magnitude of risk and on the consequences on in utero irradiation. It is therefore timely to review the asks and benefits of research involving the exposure of humans to radiation. The objective of Radiological Protection in Biomedical Research is to provide advice to individuals planning such research, those involved in issuing general rules of conduct, and those engaged in evaluation of specific research projects.The report should also be madeavailableto those who may become the subject of investigations (patients, volunteers). Published with this report is Addendum 1 to ICRP Publication 53, Radiation Dose topatientsfrom Radiopharmaceuticals. Published in l987, ICRP Publication 53 contained calculations on absorbed doses per unit activity administered for some 120 radiopharmaceuticals in regular use at the time. The calculations were based upon biokinetic mod@is and best estimates @f biokinetic data for individual radiopharrnaceuticals. Since 1987 new radiopharmaceuticals have been introduced into regular use. This addendum presents biokinetic and dosimetic data on six new radiopharmaceutics, and is intended to be part of a continuing process of updating. Finally, a Summary of the Current ICRP Principles for Protection o.f the Patient in Diagnostic Radiology is induded with the report.

Product Description:

In recent years much progress has been made in radiological methods, in dosimetry, and in the knowledge of radiation effects. The ICRP has increased its risk estimates, and in addition, more extensive information has become available on the effect of age at exposure, on gender differences, on the magnitude of risk and on the consequences on in utero irradiation. The objective of Radiological Protection in Biomedical Research is to provide advice to individuals planning such research, those involved in issuing general rules of conduct, and those engaged in evaluation of specific research projects. The report should also be made available to those who may become the subject of investigations (patients, volunteers). Published with this report is a Summary of the current ICRP Principles for Protection of the Patient in Diagnostic Radiology. This has been prepared to encourage medical professionals to become aware of and to utilise those basic principles, and is an update of a previous summary that appeared in ICRP Publication 57 (1989). Finally, the report includes Addendum 1 to ICRP Publication 53 on Radiation Dose to Patients from Radiopharmaceuticals; this part of the report however is superseded by ICRP Publication 80.

Review:

...an important reference document for clinicians and scientists engaged in research involving radiation exposure of humans... Together with an understanding of appropriate national regulations, this report provides an excellent framework for understanding and minimizing radiological risk in human subjects research...individuals planning research or assessing research projects involving human subjects and authoritative bodies involved in establishing rules of conduct will find this document indispensable. -- 1993

This latest publication by the ICRP is essential reading for all medical personnel undertaking research involving volunteers and patients using ionising radiations as well as consultants in primary care departments of Dental Institutes and Hospitals attached to Universities and Hospital Trusts. -- A.G. Richards, Radiation Protection Service, University of Leeds, 1993
