Accidental overexposure to iridium 192 source in industrial radiography a follow up study

, : Accidental overexposure to iridium 192 source in industrial radiography a follow up study. Health Physics 62(1): 74-76

The consequences of a accidental overexposure from an 192Ir radiography source are being followed up to assess the long-term effects to the victim. The estimated dose equivalents resulting from the accident were .apprx. 24 Sv to the fingertips and 2-3 Sv to the body. Progressive tissue deterioration has set in and has led to multiple surgeries and successive amputations of the fingertips.
