Assessment of Biodosimetry Methods for a Mass-Casualty Radiological Incident Medical Response and Management Considerations
Sullivan, J.M., Prasanna, P.G., Grace, M.B., et al. (2013). Assessment of Biodosimetry Methods for a Mass-Casualty Radiological Incident: Medical Response and Management Considerations. Health Physics. 105(6):540-54.
The authors provide an extensive review of biodosimetry methods and their respective utility following a mass casualty radiological incident, taking into account disruptions in infrastructure, limited resources, ease of use, and time to results. They conclude that no single method will be sufficient, and that biodosimetry is one component of what must be a more comprehensive approach to triage and medical management of casualties.
