Cytogenetic monitoring by use of the micronucleus assay among hospital workers exposed to low doses of ionizing radiation.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess occupationally induced chromosomal damage in a large population of hospital workers exposed to low doses of ionizing radiation. We used the cytokinesis-block micronucleus (CBMN) assay in the peripheral lymphocytes of 132 exposed workers compared with 69 controls matched for gender, age and smoking habits. The CBMN assay… (More)
