Radiological assessment for human and aquatic wildlife

Research outputpeer-review

Abstract

This study focusses on the impact of radiopharmaceuticals in water and their incorporation to the food chain leading to human and wildlife exposure. We present a methodology to dynamic calculate dose rates to non-human biota at the outlet of a WWTP for short-lived hospital-sourced radionuclides, based on the redevelopment of the marine biokinetic model D-DAT (Vives Batlle et al., 2008; Vives i Batlle, 2016) for freshwater biota, and extending it to a wide range of medical radionuclides. We have also developed and tested a method to calculate doses to WWTP workers and from agricultural practices.
