Four state-of-the-art biodosimeters--GPA mutations, chromosome translocations, micronuclei, and dicentrics--were used to evaluate a radiation worker who believed that the official dosimetry records substantially underestimated his actual dose. Dosimetry records indicated that the worker received 0.56 Sv during a 36-y employment history, always within the dose limits. In contrast, the worker believed that his dose equivalent may have been more than 2.5 Sv because much of the exposure was… CONTINUE READING
