Cytogenetic monitoring of hospital workers occupationally exposed to ionizing radiation using the micronucleus centromere assay.

Abstract

A cytogenetic study was performed in lymphocytes of hospital workers occupationally exposed to X- and gamma-rays using the micronucleus centromere assay. A comparison of the data for the exposed group and an age-matched group of non-exposed hospital workers showed a significant (P < 0.05) increase in centromere-positive micronuclei for the radiation workers… (More)
