This paper focuses on the opportunities to gain risk assessment information from populations exposed to ionizing radiation. Details are presented on the scale of the nuclear events in several areas within the former Soviet Union. An overview of the issues associated with dose reconstruction by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) is given. Principles and outline of the EPR tooth enamel dose assessment are described. Technical details, the latest achievements and the problems of each procedural… CONTINUE READING
