It is most incomplete regarding accidents causing only minor injuries and radiotherapy accidents. amount of radiation all at one time could become sick or even die within hours or days. This level of exposure would be rare and can happen only in extreme situations, such as a serious nuclear accident or a nuclear attack. 7. Determining Radiation Limits. Current science suggests there is some risk from any exposure to radiation. However.

    Description. On 5 February , a radiological accident occurred at an industrial irradiation facility near San Salvador, El Salvador. Medical products are sterilized at the facility by irradiation by means of an intensely radioactive cobalt source in a movable source rack. The IAEA is a leading publisher in the nuclear field. Its more than 9, scientific and technical publications include international safety standards, technical guides, conference proceedings and scientific reports. They cover the breadth of the IAEA’s work, focusing on nuclear power, radiation therapy, nuclear safety and security, and nuclear law, among others.
