Summary of Radiation Hazards And It’s Sources:

SOURCES OF RADIATION HAZARDS

Radiations hazards mainly take place due

Sources of Radiation Hazards

INTERNAL SOURCES OF RADIATION                                                                                                

This type of radiation hazards are due to:

  • Deposition of radioactive nuclide by injection to body
  • Deposition of radioactive nuclide by inhalation in
    the body
  • Deposition of radioactive nuclide by swallowing

EXTERNAL SOURCES OF RADIATION

Radiation hazards from the external source are
due to :

  • Natural radiation
  • Artificial radiation

RADIATION HAZARDS FROM NATURAL RADIATION

  • Radon
  • The sun
  • Rock and soils
  • Inside the human body

RADIATION HAZARDS FROM ARTIFICIAL RADIATION

Radiation hazard take place due to artificial
source of radiation such as:

  • Medically
  • Many medical institutions discharge radioactive materials into environment.
  • Due to environmental radiation
  • Radiation in consumer products.
