Abstract

In scenarios involving a malevolent use of radiation, members of the public may be exposed to dif-ferent types of radiations, and exposures may vary from very low level to substantial. These expo-sures may occur in combination with conventional injuries. For an adequate rapid response to such acts easy-to-use practical tools are needed to address the potentially significant health consequences, using European guidelines covering triage to treatment and long term follow up of affected individu-als.
