The Experimental Validation

The Experimental Validation

  • Anatomically accurate human phantom models were employed.

  • 60 thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs) were embedded throughout the bone marrow cavities of the pelvis for precise recording of attenuation at each point.

  • One phantom was equipped with the StemRad 360 Gamma whereas the other served as an unprotected control.

  • Phantoms were then subjected to irradiation with a Cs-137 (0.662 Mev) source.

Fallout Recreation: Cloud Source Cs-137 Irradiation

To create a realistic fallout setting, the source was shifted in relation to the phantoms, to 3 discreet positions along the Z-axis while the phantoms themselves were rotated to 4 discreet positions along the X-Y plane.
