Transcript of "Appendix 23A India Host Country Report.ppt"

  1. 1. IAEA/RCA Training Course on “Assessment of Occupational Exposure due to Intakes of Radionuclides” October 20-31, 2003. •Provide training in the principal concepts, methods and equipment used for assessment of internal exposure to ionizing radiation, with emphasis on application to occupational radiation protection. •Targeted to developing countries, particularly those in the model project.
  2. 2. •Attended by 19 participants from 11 RCA Member States in the Asian region. •Bangladesh, P.R. China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Republic of Korea, Srilanka, Thailand and Vietnam. •The feedback received from the participants was highly encouraging. IAEA experts and the foreign participants expressed their profound appreciation for the laboratory facilities and the equipment which was made available for the hand on training and also for the quality of the arrangements and the conduct of the course. It was expected that the knowledge and the experiences gained by the participants would be beneficial to them in their professional career. IAEA review published in Health Physics Vol. 86, No.1, Jan. 2004.
  3. 3. Topics covered Principles of designing a programme for monitoring occupational exposure Criteria for the need for monitoring Individual dose assessment Direct monitoring methods Indirect monitoring methods Uncertainties and performance criteria Interpretation of direct and indirect measurements Internal dosimetry software Assessment of internal exposure following accidents or incidents Quality assurance and quality control Records and record keeping. Practical exercise Four practicals on direct and indirect methods of internal dosimetry
  4. 4. Shri.H.S.Kamath, Director, Nuclear Fuels and Radiochem. & Isotop Group addressing the audience. Others on the dais are ( from left to right): Dr. A.S. Pradhan, Head, IDD and the Course Director, Dr.A.Andrasi, IAEA Expert , Shri. H. S. Kushwaha, Director, H,S&E Group, Dr.R.V. Griffith, and Dr. Castellani, IAEA Experts.
  5. 5. IAEA- Regional Training course On Radiation Protection in Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, 17-21 Nov. 2003 •Objective of the training course was to organize a pilot national programme on Quality Assurance (QA) in Radiology. This included an overview on optimization of radiation protection in diagnostic radiology, including radiography, dental radiography, digital radiography, fluoroscopy, computed tomography, mammography and interventional radiology so that patient dose can be reduced using the derived optimum conditions.
  6. 6. Attended by 12 participants from 8 Countries Philippines, India, Malaysia, Myanmar, Republic of Korea, Srilanka, Thailand and Vietnam. The 5-day programme for Regional Training course consisted of 18 lectures and 3 practical exercises, which were delivered / demonstrated by a faculty from IAEA, TMH and BARC.
  7. 7. • Concept on optimization of radiation protection in diagnostic radiology and awareness of the ICRP's conceptual framework and the international Basic Safety Standards requirement (BSS) for radiation protection , quality assurance, shielding and facility design, occupational medical exposure and patient dose assessment arising from the diagnostic imaging techniques were duly covered. • In the concluding session it was stressed that each country should continuously strive towards introduction of the general radiation protection concepts, applicable to medical diagnostic radiology, as established by the International Standard System (ICRP, UNSCEAR, IAEA).
  8. 8. To evolve national strategies for control over radioactive sources and to provide practical guidance to the Member States on the development of national strategy for improving control over radioactive sources, particularly dangerous sources (Categories 1-3). Determination of the magnitude of the potential problem with orphan and vulnerable sources, evolution and implementations of an appropriate Action Plan that will result in all significant sources being managed in a safe and secure manner. IAEA – Regional Workshop on Development on National Strategies for Improving Control over Radioactive Sources including Orphan Sources, March 29 to April 1, 2004
  9. 9. Attended by 15 participants from 9 Countries During the feedback session, the participants appreciated the Workshop contents and hoped that it will help in the development of national strategy for improving control over radioactive sources.
