Abstract
In the case of a large-scale radiological-nuclear (RN) event, it is imperative to quickly identify exposed individuals for the purpose of medical intervention and to identify first responders who must be restricted from further exposure. Even for a lesser scale event, many concerned members of the public will demand an assessment of their radiation exposure. The purpose of this project is to expand the National Biological Dosimetry Response Plan (NBDRP), created under CRTI 0027RD,from a proof-of-concept initiative into a formalized medical and casualty management tool. Unexploited Canadian biodosimetry capacity will be integrated into the NBDRP, which will help enhance existing biological dosimetry expertise. In addition, the NBDRP will be strengthening links to American and international partners, working towards an international biodosimetry network.
