Advances in a Framework to Compare Bio-dosimetry Methods for Triage in Large-Scale Radiation Events
Flood, A.B., Boyle, H.K., Du, G., et al. (2014). Advances in a Framework to Compare Bio-dosimetry Methods for Triage in Large-Scale Radiation Events. Radiation Protection Dosimetry. 159(1-4):77-86.
The authors compared the performance of six bio-dosimetry methods for five different population sizes ranging from 100-1,000,000, at a rate of 15 or 15,000 people per hour with four additional time windows. They conclude that larger population sizes require longer triage times, which decreases the usefulness of time-intensive methods. They discuss the value of using multiple methods to assess casualties.
